          RICHARD YUKENBARRI TJAKAMARRA (born c.1960) (Language group: Pintupi) Untitled 2003 synthetic polymer paint on canvas inscribed verso with artist's name and Papunya Tula Artists cat. no. RY0311067 91 x 61cm PROVENANCE: Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs (accompanied by a copy of a certificate of authenticity) Private collection, Melbourne OTHER NOTES: "This painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Kunkunya, south of Lake Macdonald. A large group of Tingari Men, who approached the site from the west, camped for a short while the men continued their travels east. Since events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature no further detail was given. Generally, the Tingari are a group of mythical characters of the Dreaming who travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites. The Tingari Men were usually followed by Tingari Women and accompanied by novices and their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles. These mythologies form part of the teachings of the post initiatory youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs."
