Bowl 'Spirit of Mt Painter.' 1991. 54.5 cms diam. Made at Summertown. Collection of Queensland Art Gallery. Mt Painter is in the Gammon Ranges National Park. It is an area rich in minerals and has some of the most spectacular scenery in Australis. I once described it as expressing the bones' of this ancient country. The whole area is part of Aboriginal lore, with stories of the 'creation' time.
