One of the finalists in the Telstra Aboriginal Art Award has depicted a buffalo attack that left her badly gored.

Yolngu artist Nyapanyapa Yunupingu's entry is accompanied by a video telling of when she was attacked in the 1970s.

"He charged at me, threw me up in the air like a football," Nyapanyapa (pictured) says in the video as she points out the horn which gored her.
