Dreamtime Sisters by Colleen Wallace Nungari
The painting depicts the Dreamtime Sisters (guardian spirits). Eastern Arrernte Aboriginal people from Central Australia call the spirits 'Irrernte-arenye'.
It is their role to guard special areas of land in particular sacred sites. Eastern Arrernte people have deep spiritual respect for the Dreamtime spirits.
- The red shapes from where the Dreamtime Sisters emerge represent the Dreaming sites
