Catalogue text

This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Papunya Tula Artists that states: ‘This painting depicts designs associated with the swamp site of Marawa, west of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay). There is both a rockhole and soakage water at this site. During mythological times a large group of Tingari Men travelled to Marawa from the west, and after arriving at the site, entered a rockhole and continued travelling underground.’
