About the Artwork
In this painting the artist has depicted tali (sand dunes); the fluid lines tell the story of the land.
Tjanpi (spinifex) and green vegetation such as mangata (desert quondong) grow here. This habitat is very fragile. In the mornings you can see networks of tracks on the sand dunes. Anangu use these markings in the tali to track animals. Generally, small mammals are found in the tali and many protect themselves by burrowing into the sand. Itjaritjari, a marsupial mole that is very rarely sighted, is likely to come to the surface after rain.
Walkatjara Art is the Aboriginal owned and governed art centre belonging to Mutitjulu community, located in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta national Park, NT.
