In this book, we encounter an Anangu concept of health: a concept that is rich in its embrace of a totality of personal and social existence. Readers are invited to join people of different cultures in their search for a way towards better health. The paintings reflect the vibrant colours of the desert landscape, and define the complexities of contemporary health issues. They do so within the context of tjukurpa: the artists' religious interpretations of the profound bonding of people to one-another, to their country, and to the species of animals and plants inhabiting it. It is continually renewed by its expression in song, dance, verbal narratives of creation stories, and symbolic depiction; and re-enacted continually in ceremonial journeys.
