“[T]his place Yalta. There is tali (sand dunes) and lots of Nyarlka (trees). Good country this one got plenty water.”
Yalta is near well 33 of 48 on the 1,800-kilometre Canning Stock Route, the longest former stock route in the world. It is located not far from the Percival Lakes in the Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia. For the Yulparija people whose land this stretch of the route traversed, survival depended on water sites, making places like Yalta most significant.
Here the artist depicts trees in blue, dotting the subtle pink and cream landscape, creating a delicate canvas that evokes wildflowers in spring.
