Nancy Chapman (Nyanjilpayi) Claypan Gunti Gunti 2011
Acrylic on linen
920 x 1220mm

The artist says 'Marnakarti lyinji' (claypan). This claypan is a very special place for the artist as this is where she was born in the pujiman (bush) days. There is kapi (water) all around the claypan and there is a warla (lake). There are lots of fresh water soaks, they would clean them out to drink from them. This is the old people's ngurra (home).
