the major elements which appear, in relation to this work based on a grid pattern, are the marsupial mouse women (minyma mingkiri) and kangaroo women (minyma malu) of a tjukurpa (creation story) from his birthplace, near mt davies beside the western australian border. harrys version of this story is something only men can know, and the side of the story which women are permitted to know is different.

this original artwork has been hand painted by aboriginal artists at the ernabella arts centre. ernabella arts centre is a place where elders, young women and men practice there art, in order to sustain, support and promote cultural heritage and improve the lifestyle of their communities members. 

at planet we donate the full retail margin (after the cost of framing, gst and artist's commission) to a charity nominated by ernabella arts centre; the western dialysis centre.
