Kim Butler Napurrula / Women’s Dreaming (19A)
30cm x 30cm Acrylic on Linen
Kim’s artwork is associated with Women’s Ceremony and Law (Tingari cycle). She paints traditional designs depicting sacred women’s sites and women performing sacred women’s ceremonies in the rockhole and soakage water site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Pollock Hills in WA. In the dreamtime, a large group of senior women camped at this rockhole making the nose bones which are worn on ceremonial occasions. The Women later travelled east gathering edible Berries known as Kampuraarpa (Desert Raisin).
