About the work

Like many of George's paintings, Near Ruined City, 2007, refers to a culturally
significant location in central Arnhem Land. Burrangie is also known as the
'Ruined City of the Moon' and is believed to be home to the giant creation
ancestors. This site is considered to be very sacred and access is restricted to
certain people from the homelands that surround it. Many of George's
paintings survey this landscape and in this fine example the artist depicts the
rocky terrain which although often very dry supports a myriad of native flora,
which George has also depicted.
