Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

This painting depicts Narlie’s Water Dreaming site at Kalipinypa, North-east of Kintore. 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 and the return of the white bird. 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.Narlie says that the dots represent the raindrops and hail stones that fell on the sand hills during the great ancestral storm.
