Alice Nampitjinpa Porcupine Dreaming 2008
Acrylic on Belgian linen 1370 x 760mm SOLD
This work is the story of Alice's personal Tjukurrpa (law) - the Porcupine. The setting is the rockholes in and
around the swamp of Taalalpi in Western Australia. The porcupine is scurrying around sticking her head in the
various holes looking for its meal. Meanwhile tracking behind are women out hunting, hoping to make the
porcupine their tucker for the evening.
