The rich and vibrant spirit of Central Australia comes to life with these new ceramic works by The Hermannsburg Potters. Comprised of a group of Arrernte women artists, The Hermannsburg Potters tell stories related to their country and culture through these skilfully crafted hand built terracotta pots and sculpture. Based at the remote foothills of the MacDonnell Ranges, 130 kilometres west of Alice Springs, they use their surrounding environment as inspiration. Native flora and fauna such as the local colourful birds and animals are thoughtfully depicted, in addition to scenes from everyday life, including their love of AFL football.
