OTHER NOTES:
This painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole sites at Marrapinti, just to the west of the Kiwikurra community. A large group of senior women camped at this site to perform ceremonies. Whilst camping they made nose bones which are worn through a hole in the septum. They gathered edible berries, Kampurarrpa, or bush raisin. The orange areas represent these berries. Naata was born at Kumil, west of Pollock Hills in Western Australia.
