Waru (Fire)

These three paintings relate to fire. The Martu’s burning practices are based on the knowledge of plant and animal species and seasonal resources. This knowledge is still being passed down from Martu elders who grew up in the bush. Much of this information is embedded in the paintings, along with the locations of springs, soakwaters and underground water systems.
