Painted at Kintore in January, 2003 for Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs
Private Collection
The artist painted just two paintings on this scale, the largest format used by the Papunya Tula Artists.

This painting is sold with its original Papunya Tula Artists documentation that reads in part, "this painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Lupulunga, south of the Kintore community. The Peewee (small bird) Dreaming is associated with this site. A group of women visited the site before continuing their travels north to Kintore. The lines in the painting represent spun and hair-string which is used in the making of hair-belts worn during the ceremonies associated with the area."
