Portrait of Mantyil May Brooks. - click to view larger image

born about 1955, Manyjilyjarra language group, Karimarra skin group, Newman, Martumili Artists

I was about 25 years of age when I went to Kunawarritji for first time for meeting. And I didn’t get homesick or lonely. Probably because I feel right at home.

May was born at old Jigalong. She is the sister of Clifford and Sarah Brooks, and her father is Rover Thomas’s older brother. May belongs to Kunawarritji (Well 33) on her father’s side and, on her mother’s, to Rarrki (Well 27).

A long rectangular painting on brown linen with a vertical line of blue circles with white border and black dotted edges down the centre. There are two smaller blue circles with white border and black dotted edges along the left edge of the painting. The larger blue circles are connected by a a beige dotted line and there are beige dotted lines from one of these circles out to the two side circles. The background of the painting is vertical rows of slim orange oblongs with dots of yellow, orange, white and maroon in between them.

Wantili (Well 25) to Wuranu (Well 29)
