Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Painted at Kintore in 2003
    Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs
    Private collection

    This painting is sold with an accompanying Papunya Tula Artists certificate which reads in part: 'This painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole and soakage water site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Pollock Hills in Western Australia. Many senior men and women camped at this rockhole making the nose-bones which are worn through a hole in the nose-web. They are shown sitting down on opposite sides of the sandhills, which are represented by the parallel lines through the middle of the painting. These nose-bones were originally worn by both men and women but are now only worn by the older generation on ceremonial occasions.'
