Minnie Pwerle, one of Australia's most important indigenous artists, was born in the Utpoia region in approximately 1910. Minnie did not start painting until late in 1999, her first finished pieces became an instant success and quickly captured the attention of prominent gallery owners.

The Atnwengerrp (Land of Dreamings) collection is a depiction of the patterns and designs painted on the top half of the women's bodies during ceremonies in their country of Atnwengerrp. Minnie passed away in 2006.

This limited edtion range of seven designs showcases Minnie's energetic brush strokes and bold use of colour.
