Thanks to long-time supporter of women’s cricket Chrissy Ponter, the Imparja Cup women’s community competition have some beautiful entry to the field stumps for the 2020.
Chrissy approached indigenous artist Emma Stubbs to design the stumps which will mark the entry point onto the field at each women’s community division game of the 2020 Imparja Cup.
Interpretation of the story of the stumps
The blue and while semi-circle design at the top represents the many different tribes/cultures/communities gathering together.
The three circles represent the meeting places (ovals) where cricket is played.
The yellow ‘U’ shape around the circles are the men and women who come to play cricket.
The three blue and white stripes are the river bed that give the image of connection to country, a reminder that we are connected through our ancestors, land, water and spirit.
Emma Stubbs is an indigenous artist who is a descendant of the Yankunitjatjara, Arabana, Adyamathana People.
Emma was raised in Tupul Homeland/Outstation near a remote community called Amata on the APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Tankunytjatjara) lands in South Australia.
Emma paints her interpretations of the landscape and places she has visited with her family from her childhood.
