Australian Aboriginal Art - Maxie Tjampitjinpa

This photograph of Flying Ant Dreaming (Wantunuma) is in focus. The swimming effect was deliberately created by the artist to give an impression of flying ants swarming.

This painting shows the ancestor flying ant men entering and leaving the ground after beginning their journey in the middle of the painting. The flying ants carry weapons such as spears and woomeras (a wooden spear-throwing device).
