There is a great deal of confusion amongst Aboriginal art collectors surrounding the identities of Angelina Ngal(e) and Angelina Pwerl(e). They are, in fact, one and the same person. Aboriginal ‘skin’ names applied by linguists and anthropologists working with the people of the Eastern Desert have changed several times during the past 20 years. Angelina was at first known by her husband’s Alyawarr language skin name, Pwerl. However this is the equivalent to Ngal amongst the Anmatyerr language group to which she personally belongs.
