Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri

To be Auctioned on July 25th 12 Noon

Warlimpirgna Tjapaltjarri c 1958, part of the ‘Lost Tribe’, living so remotely in the Gibson Desert- they are cited as the closest work to that untouched by European influence. Many aspects to story- from landforms (sand dunes etc- also Lake Mackay itself in topographical view), camouflage and ‘Tingari’(older man’s knowledges, of which there is much fascination given the geographical location and the geometric patterning). Important man’s inherited stories.
