Tea towel artwork/placement varies from tea towel to tea towel so each one is a little bit different.

About the artwork -

This painting shows the traditional practices associated with burning off areas of spinifex country.  The fires are lit so that 'liwirringki' (burrowing skinks), other lizareds and small mallas are flushed out of their burrows and hiding places.  This allows them to be more easily caught for food and also enables the tr-growth of a diversity of plants, which in turn attracts a broader range of animal food species.  The 'kirda' (custodians) of this dreaming are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nungarraji women.

About the artist -

Otto was born in 1960 at Yuendumu, an Aboriginal community about 290 km NW of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.  He remembers spending much of his childhood travelling in the surrounding country of this region.  Otto finished high school in Yuendumu and has continued his studies through the indigenous college in Alice Springs where he got a bachelors in business.  He has worked for the Yuendumu Council and the Tanami Goldmine in the 1990's.
