Stone Emu Nest Dreaming - Spirit of the Bush 2 by Chern'ee Sutton for Kennard & Kennard fabrics

This painting is called “Ntia Utinat Kutu Dreaming” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Stone Emu Egg Dreaming”. Kalkadoon people have looked at the stars and used them to follow their dreaming tracks or songlines for thousands of years and had a very good understanding of the motions of the sun, the moon, the planets and the stars throughout the year. Stories about the stars and constellations were passed down from generation to generation and this painting tells the story of the Emu in the sky and the stone emu nests.
