The Wudyabarri Gamu Collection
Wudyabarri Gamu, or big water, falls over the drought stricken country that lay dormant for many, many years. As it meanders across the rugged thirsty landscapes, Wudyabarri Gamu begins to change the countryside almost instantly by bringing life back to our traditional lands. This original print by artist Kerry Thompson echoes the flora and fauna are frolicking and swaying happily across the landscapes, flaunting off their vibrant and beautiful colours as they connect themselves back to country and to each other.
