Maureen Poulson Napangardi Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) 2010
Acrylic on canvas 1515 x 600mm $1640
This painting depicts designs associated with Water dreaming at Kalipinypa a site northwest of Kintore. The
tjukurrpa tells of an important rain making ceremony to invoke the elements. It is a powerful storm bringing on the
lightning, thunderclouds and rain sending its deluge to rejuvenate the earth, filling rock holes, clay pans and creeks. It
has the power to create new life and growth upon the land.
