Papunya Tjupi Arts

Papunya Tjupi Artwork - Tilau Nangala - Mikantji - 55-18

$2,850

This story relates to a place called Mikantji, an important Water Dreaming site west of the remote Aboriginal community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. The custodians of this sacred place are the Nangala and Nampitjimpa women and their brothers, the Tjangala and Tjampitjimpa men. The painting tells how the women perform ceremonies or inma celebrating the creation of the Mikantji site by the storm ancestors.

If present, the U shapes are women, the circles are waterholes, the long sinuous lines are creeks, and the short curved lines are puuli or hills.

Papunya Tjupi Arts is an Aboriginal owned, community-based enterprise, representing over 100 artists. We encourage the sharing of knowledge and skills to foster self-determination and cultural development. This is done through arts practice, community activities, meaningful employment and training opportunities. All proceeds are split between the artists and the funding of further community projects.
