    This painting is sold with an accompanying Papunya Tula Artists certificate that reads in part: 'The roundel in the centre of the painting depicts a small rockhole in the centre of a salt lake at the site of Marnpi to the south-east of the Kintore community.

    The background design represents the sandhill country which surrounds the site. Marnpi is the artist's birthplace but his family moved from here when he was a small boy'.
