Private Collection, NSW StoryThis painting depicts designs associated with the rock hole site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Kiwirrkura Community. A large group of senior women camped at this rock hole making the nose-bones, also known as Marrapinti, which are worn through a hole in the nose-web. These nose-bones were originally won by both men and women but are now only worn by the older generation on ceremonial occasions. The women later travelled east passing through the Kiwirrkura area.
The arcs represent sand hills surrounding the site.
