Ray Tjapaltjari Two Mob (Skingroups) Travelling 2002


Acrylic on linen 406 x 1524mm SOLD This painting depicts the dreaming of two skingroups Tjungarrayi and Tjapaltjari travelling. The men wear belts made from human hair as well as adorning themselves with a material called Wamulu. The Wamulu is a pulp created from a small herbacious plant that is mixed with various ochres and other substances to get the desired colours. The brown lines depict the different skingroups travelling seperately from Lajamanu to Arrapilong. The designs indicate body paint.
