Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

This painting depicts the Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) at Kalipinypa, North-east of Kintore. Kalipinypa is Jacquie's father's country. The painting tells the story of the rain and hail making ceremony for the site of Kalipinypa. Ancestral forces are invoked to bring on a powerful storm with lightning, thunderclouds and rain sending a deluge to rejuvenate the earth, filling the rock holes, clay pans and creeks and creating new life and growth upon the land. Today the Nakamarra, Tjakamarra, Napurrula and Tjupurrula men and women are the custodians of this important Water Dreaming site and celebrate its stories in the ceremonies.

Jacquie has used imagery to depict different parts of the landscape and story from this site. The curved shapes are puuli (hills) and tali (sand hills), the lone circle is a waterhole, the lines are creeks and kapi (water).
