Cooee Gallery, NSW Exhibited Reference StoryThis painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Kiwirrkura Community. A large group of senior women camped at this site and gathered kampurarrpa (bush raisins), which are ground to make a type of traditional damper. This site is also associated with nose piercing rituals for Pintupi women. The grid design literally represents a symbolic map of the Western Desert region and each section depicts ancestral activities that were part of the formation of the present day environment.
