about

The site of Kalipinypa is located approximately 400 km west of Alice Springs, and to the north-east of Kintore. Johnny Tjupurrula had authority over this area and it was painted by this master extensively. It is considered a storm centre, and Water or Rain Dreaming site.

The painting is a typical representation of the artist's later work, the U shapes show the location of soaks and waterholes, the footprints of birds and animals and the dots reveal hail, rain and bushfood.
