Willy Nakanbala Tjungarrayi Marapulpa Tjukurrpa (Funnel Web Spider Dreaming) 2010
Acrylic on canvas 1220 x 910mm $1960
The spider created tunnels “roads” through which the ancestral wallabies travelled under the ground from a place
called Yarrungkanyi (Northwest of Yuendumu) towards the west. The wallabies merged at Tjunyinpa(west of
Kintore) and there spread across the surrounding country. The circles represent the spiders’ holes that the spiders
made in the ground of that place.
