Untitled #265

about

This piece, painted in the traditional Western desert dot painting style shows us a bird's eye view of the desert landscape of Central Australia. The concentric circles represent various holy places scattered throughout the landscape. They are believed to have been created by the Tingari, a group of mythical supernatural ancestral beings that travelled the landscape in the Dreamtime, the time in which the Aboriginals believe the earth was created by these spirit beings. The wavy dotted lines between them are referred to as 'tali' and 'puli', sandhills and rocky outcops.
