Description: This Traditional and striking painting depicts sacred rock hole site Kungka Tjulta in the area of the artist’s birthplace surrounded by Tali (Hills) where women gather to perform sacred ceremonial women’s business where they paint the upper part of their bodies with these designs. This is her mother’s dreaming and also Napaltjarri story. In mythological times, an old woman passed through this site during her travels towards the east. This old woman is said to be a 'bit of a devil-devil' as she kills and eats people. Excellent Investment at a great sale price. More designs available, enquiries welcome.
