Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Painted at Kintore in 2008
    Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs
    Superannuation Fund of William Nuttall and Annette Reeves

    This painting is sold with accompanying Papunya Tula Artists documentation that reads in part: 'The painting depicts designs associated with the site of Lupulnga, a rockhole situated south of the Kintore Community. The Peewee (small bird) Dreaming is associated with this site, as well as the Kungka Kutjarra or Two Travelling Women Dreaming. During ancestral times a group of women visited this site, holding ceremonies associated with the area before continuing their travels north to Kaakuratintja (Lake MacDonald) and later the Kintore area. The lines in the painting represent spun hair-string which is used for making nyimparra (hair-belts), which are worn by both men and women during ceremonies.'

    Makinti Napanangka has been selected for the 18th Biennale of Sydney, 2012.
