Ningie Nanala Nangala Wirnti 2003
Acrylic on canvas 600 x 450mm SOLD
Ningie has painted some of her parent's country, located far to the south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. This
country is called Wirnti, after the wanirri (rockhole) shown in the painting. Surrounding the wanirri, and
dominating the landscape of the area, are tali, or sand dunes. Ningie used to live here when she was a young girl
and would often hunt goanna.
