AMANDA WESTLEY Sun Woman
AMANDA WESTLEY - Ngarrindjeri Artist
The sun and moon are both women in Ngarrindjeri culture... the spirits of the dead saw sun woman walking westwards. As she came towards their camp all those spirits who were sitting there divided into 2 groups to enable her to walk between them. They called to her to sit down and she replied, 'only for a short while!' she had to rise for walking the next morning... her colours pink, orange and yellow covering Ngaiindjeri ruwi as she rises and walks.
