Step into a world where First Nations art invites you to imagine standing on the hills surrounding Irrunytju, gazing upward on moonless nights at the vast expanse of ink-black skies. Here, you'll bear witness to a breathtaking spectacle: billions of stars collectively forming the enchanting Milky Way. This painting, masterfully created by Rebecca Parker, hails from the Kutjara Minyma Arts Project—an esteemed Aboriginal arts center nestled in the remote community of Irrunytju (Wingellina). Positioned a mere ten kilometers away from the intersection of Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and South Australia, this centre stands as a testament to artistic initiation and leadership.

Guided by artists like Rebecca Parker, Minyma Kutjara is a vibrant celebration of community and Country, offering a nurturing space for artists to learn, explore, create, and share their rich culture. Beyond its artistic allure, Rebecca Parker's painting beckons you to embrace the universe's marvels through the lens of indigenous culture and creativity. As your contemplation unfolds, the boundaries between the canvas and the sky blur, revealing a connection between stories and starlight. For collectors of contemporary Indigenous, landscape, astronomy, or cultural heritage art, this painting is a heavenly depiction of the Milky Way intertwined with First Nations culture and the beauty of the outback.
