Artist // Nyilyari Tjapangati

This painting depicts designs associated with the salt lake site of Wilinkarra (Lake McKay). In ancestral times, a large group of Tingari men visited this site on their travels toward the east. The concentric squares represent the soakage waters near Winparku while the jagged lines represent the path of the Tingari men as they travelled toward Wilinkarra. The design is also consistent with those used during rain making ceremonies.The Timagri are a group of ancestral beings who travelled over vast stretches of country, performing rituals and creating and shaping sites.
