About Cowboy Story
From the mid nineteen forties, many Anangu men were employed by remote desert-based cattle stations, to work across the lands; mustering cattle on horseback and droving large herds of animals across the vast lands to water supplies and farms.

Now retired from their lifelong careers as stockmen, these respected Tjilpi’s (old men) enjoy recounting their youth; the skills they learnt at the stations, the comradery they shared, the rugged landscape that they know so well, and the key imagery that forms their personal iconography and embellishes their canvas.
