Design: This design by Roseanna Larry shows the ‘Warliyajarrayi Story’
This story was passed down to the artist from Old Lady Napaltjarri Morton. The painting shows the story of Janyanpartinya Creek (Mount Campbell). The kingki/tjanpa and milarrpa watinki/ukurrukurru tjuta (boogey men and women) live near this creek.
The old ladies can sing the boogey men and women so that they come.
Ikuntji Artists: the first art centre established by women in the Australian Aboriginal Western Desert Art Movement. Already in the 1980s women began painting in Haasts Bluff in the aged care facility. They had been instructed by their husbands and fathers, and they had often assisted them in completing their paintings. By the early 1990s these women artists decided to pursue setting up their own art centre. Ikuntji is an Aboriginal owned, non-profit Aboriginal Corporation.
