ESSAY:
This painting is accompanied by a certificate from Papunya Tula Artists that states in part: ‘The design in this painting depicts the claypan site of Kirrimalunya, north of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay). In ancestral times two Ngangkari (Aboriginal healers) were camped at this site. The two were only young boys, but often this healing power is given to Ngangkaris by the time they are young teenagers. This ancestral story forms part of the Tingari Cycle [...].These ancestral stories form part of the teachings of the post initiatory youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.’
