Mikantji by Tilau Nangala
Ink on arches watercolour paper, Framed.
Dimensions: 790mm x 1150mm
This story relates to a place called Mikantji, an important Water dreaming site, west of Yuendumu whose custodians 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, circles are waterholes, long sinuous lines are creeks, and short curved lines are puuli or hills.
