Representing the female side of her tribe’s Dreamings. Watiya Tjuta relates to men’s wooden objects, Mitjili paints the trees that are used to make spears, whereas her brother Turkey Tolsen painted the Dreaming associated with the spear making itself.
Mitjili was taught her father’s dreaming by her mother. Mitjilli considers this to be one of her most important connections to her father because her father’s country, Ulwalki, is where the trees are found that provide the wood for spear making. Mitjilli utilises strong symbolic patterns with vivid contrasting colours to represent her Dreamings.
