Spirit of the Bush 2 – Mountains – 2061U


This painting is called “Ntia Purrku” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Mountains” and this painting represents the many mountains in Kalkatungu country that are home to Jessie’s people.
The Kalkadoon people were extremely tall and muscular which was a result from the mountainous country and valleys they walked and climbed and also the diet they had. They were one of the healthiest aboriginal clans which was attributed to their diet of wild game, fruits, vegetables and fish. There was an abundance of grass seeds, edible roots, vegetables, vines, caper, pea’s and berries and also mineralised water from the rivers and streams. This painting is her interpretation of Kalkadoon Country with the undulating mountains and valleys that are home to her people.
