This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Watiyawanu Artists which reads in part: ‘Predominately... his work tells the story of the rockholes near Pirupa Alkla (rockholes near the Olgas and Uluru) and the journey to Areyonga and Haasts Bluff. Whiskey is a very traditional man with an extremely jovial personality and the bright colours in his work have been said to reflect the character of this man.’
