Acrylic paints on linen
|Description:||This paint relates to the story of an old woman who travelled to the Tingari site of Kunjara, a rockhole west of Kaakuratintja or Lake McDonald. She approached the site from the west after digging for goannas and gathering other bush foods nearby. Since the events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature no further detail was given.
George Tjungarrayi was born in Pintupi country across the Western Australia border. He began painting in West Camp in Papunya about 1976 for Papunya Tula and continued painting while residing at Yai Yai, Warawa, Mt Liebig and eventually Kintore. His ancestral country covers the sites around Wala Wala, Kiwirrkura, Lake Mackay, Kulkuta, Karku, Ngaluwinyamana and Kilpinya to the north-west of Kintore across the West Australian border.
