This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Delmore Gallery that states: The artist, Emily Kngwarreye, is a fully ritual Aboriginal woman of approximately 80 years of age, producing stunningly beautiful works of art of a modern abstractionist style, whilst keeping true to her country. Emilys country, Alalgura, has many varieties of bush tucker and animals associated with it. Often she will select a tree, vine or fruit bearing plant whose seed, fruit, leaves and flowers lie on, above or below the earth and intermingle with other forms of life in that preferred area. Each work brings an enthusiastic verbal patter about her country and the various bush tucker species that rouse her passion. Her palette is always an interesting one.
