In this fabric, designer Charlie Egan depicts people from various places gathering to attend the corroboree. A large tent functions as the main area, where people join the corroboree from surrounding areas. All of the important discussions and activities take place in this ten, where the Elders are located. Traditionally, Elders discuss matters such as how to maintain the social order while attendees will listen to them very quietly. These broad discussions are encouraged without fear of the topic at hand.
The U-shaped motives in this artwork around the boundaries of the tent refer to men, women, and children. They are taking rests or quietly walking. Dotted lines are the paths for people’s movement while larger dots represent bush food and waterholes.
