Carvings by Lexi Ward

Lexi Ward lives at Aputula Community 421km from Alice Springs.  She looks after lots of dogs on the community, sometimes up to 30.  She sells her carvings in order to purchase food and care for the dogs.

One of her favourites is called ‘Home Alone’.  She gave him this name because he stayed on alone at his owner’s house after the owner passed away.  Lexi visited the dog and made sure he had food and care.  Eventually he came to stay at Lexi’s house.
