Artwork Description

Oil on stretched canvas, ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

When we travel across the land, we can see Tjukuritja – physical evidence of the activities of the ancestral beings that still exist in our land.
The details of these beings’ activities and travels are taught to us in Tjukurpa stories, songs, dances and ceremonies.
We call their journeys across our land iwara (songlines). It is possible to follow the stories and songs of ancestors along these songlines, sometimes for many hundreds of kilometres. When you are in the park, you can follow the Tjukurpa stories and see Tjukuritja as you walk around Uluru.
At Kata Tjuta, the activities of the ancestral beings are so sensitive that not even their names can be revealed.
Kata Tjuta is a very important men’s business site. As a result, access to cultural knowledge about Kata Tjuta is restricted, as is access to certain areas.
Anangu women may sometimes enter areas to gather plants and animals, but this is done away from the men’s business areas and when men’s business is not in progress.
Because information about Kata Tjuta is restricted to initiated men, the Tjukurpa associated with these magnificent domes and valleys is not shared with visitors.
However, you should still visit Kata Tjuta to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Walpa Gorge and the Valley of the Winds.
