ESSAY:
This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Kayili Artists that states: ‘TjamuTjamu, is east of Kiwirrkurra. It is the artist’s father's county and part of the Tingari. There is a rockhole at there and it is the place a group of ladies camped with one man (wati). He was the kangaroo ancestor and the ladies were his sisters, aunties, mothers and grandmothers. He wanted all the ladies to be his wives. He came along from the north and called the ladies to come and camp with him. They wanted to call him TjampuTjampu (grandfather, grandson) but he wanted to be called KurrilKurril (keep as a spouse someone who is not eligible), which is the name given to a rockhole at this place. The kangaroo-maluTjukurrpa continues traveling to Tjutalpi, Witunkuntja, Wirti, Makarra, Millmillpa and Kurryl, this is the artist’s Tjukurpa.’
