For Love of Country showcases works by Peter Mungkuri, Whiskey Tjukangku, Alec Baker and Tiger Yaltangki. They are four senior artists from Iwantja Arts and Crafts, located in Indulkana, South Australia.

In the Anangu Ptijantjatjara Yangkunyjatjara Lands in the far north of South Australia, characterised by red dirt, dust, dry river beds and scrub, four internationally renowned octogenarian artists depict their custodial country: eevery rockhole, waterhole, wiltja (shelter) and tree, and where to find mai wiru (good food). Ngura (country, place, home) is central to Aboriginal people’s spirituality, culture, and sense of belonging. The cultural integrity of the work evokes a connection that is compelling and injects a value that is both precious and sustaining.
