#KB45 Aboriginal art dot painting
Acrylic on canvas,
Butterfly (Matimati) Dreaming
Port Keats, western Northern Territory.
24" x 38".

The artist is Anthony Nemarluk.

Could be a namesake of Nemarluk, a fierce Aborigine warrior who also inhabited the Port Keats area in the early 20th Century.

Nemarluk was tried and convicted of murdering the crew of Japanese fishing boat that anchored near his lands. He died in 1940.

Whether or not there was any relationship between Anthony Nemarluk, the painter, and Nemarluk, the warrior, does not diminish the striking beauty of this Aboriginal art painting.
