Catalogue text

This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tjungu Palya Arts that states: ‘Wati Kutjara Tjukurpa (the creation story for the two serpent men). The two wanampi, father and his son travel from rockhole to rockhole in country around Wingellina. The two men travelled from Pukara to Kuru Ala and Nyumu. After the rains the desert goes from red to really green. There is grass everywhere. The two men are happy in their country.’
