The Central Australian Aboriginal community of Utopia is notable not only for being home to the great Emily Kngwarreye and Angelina Pwerle, but also the home of wonderful carvers. Originally carving was used to create traditional implements. Utopian carvers in particular, were notable for their fine fluted boomerangs. Since the 80's, the carvers have used these skills and inventiveness to create wonderful and engaging sculptures beyond traditional subjects.

Wally Pwerle in particular, is one of the notable original Utopian carvers. In this body of work he has created a cast of delightfully quirky characters that display not only his skill but also his sense of humour.
