Flying dingoes, 1974, Mick Namarari Tjapaltjarri

Synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 80 x 61 cm

This acrylic painting has a design superimposed on a map of the escarpment where the dingo became a landform. The central series of motifs reveal the dingo’s body, with tracks on either side representing its paw marks. The dingo’s long ears, depicted as elongated arcs on either side of the concentric circles, enabled it to fly.
