Summary

Examines the art of the Gunbalunya area of Western Arnhem Land, its overriding importance to the people, and records how 15 artists from the region created a collection of 45 paintings to record their culture and stories.

"The artists of the Injalak Arts and Crafts Association, together with the people of Gunbalanya (Oenpelli), are proud to introduce Kunwinjku art from Injalak, 1991-1992 : the John W. Kluge commission. This collection comprises forty five paintings that depict important Dreamings that are of great significance to the Kunwinjku people. Working on this commission was a unique opportunity for the artists and elders of Gunbalanya to collaborate on a comprehensive and multi-faceted project. It is the first time that we have worked together in such a way, and the results have been very satisfying."--Page 10.
