This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs, which reads in part: ‘This painting depicts designs associated with the soakage water site of Ngatjapirritja, just to the south of the Kiwirrkura community. In mythological times a large group of Tingari Men came to this site from the west. After camping for a short while they continued their travels further east.’
