DESCRIPTION

This is the story about my Grandmother’s country it is call Kungarrangkalpa Seven Sister. It is south of Papulankutja. You can see today the circles at the site in the cave from that dreamtime story. It’s the young girls turning into young women. The bigger circles are already big women. They have been travelling for food and they saw that man had already taken the big sister. So they are taking her to the second cave for resting and geƫting better. You can see that man sitƫing he already attacked her. Rockhole down the bottom called Kuru Ala, they drank that water in the early days, and still today you can drink, water is still there.

This painting needs to be framed or stretched. It’s also being sent direct from the artist at a remote art centre, Papulankutja Arts, in the WA desert. Please note there is only one mail plane a week that takes the artwork. The tracking information is then received a week later when the mail plane returns, so often the paintings are delivered before we receive the tracking information. Please expect a slightly longer wait for this very special artwork to arrive.
