Ilgali Inyayimanha – ‘Shared Sky’

“It doesn’t matter where we live on this barna (earth). Nganha (we) are all sharing the same Ilgari (sky). Although we may see different Ilgarijiri (things belonging to the sky) we are looking up at the same stars and constellations. We are Ilgari Inyayimanha (sharing the sky). Bulgari Ingari Inyayimanha. Those two are sharing the sky – Australia and South Africa. Ngahu ilgari Inyayimanha. (We are all sharing the sky).” © Margaret Whitehurst, Jenny Green , Barbara Merritt, Charmaine Green, Kevin Merritt, Sherryl Green, Tracey Green, Wendy Jackamarra, Susan Merry, Johnaya Jones, Gemma Merritt, Craig ‘Chook’ Pickett and Nerolie Blurton – acrylic on linen
