Tali - sand hills or dunes are a dominate feature of the desert landscape of the Ngaanyatayarra Lands. The waves of sand hills are formed when sand is swept up by the wind and dumped where it meets obstacle. The tali have gentle slopes on he side exposed to wind, while on the other side thy drop off steeply. 

Papulankutja or Blackstone Community was established after Ngaanyatjarra people walked out of Warburton mission in the 1970's and returned to their land in the shadow of the spectacular Blackstone Range west of the tri-state border. Papulankutja Artists was established in 2001 and incorporated in 2004 growing out of Blackstone's women's centre. After many years of working through the womens centre, Papulankutja Artists opened their own purpose built art studio in 2009. Papulankutja Artists are vert community focussed.
