Naata Nungarrayi
Title: Marrapinti
Price: $1350.00 in Australia and Export.
PA084, 2003
Acrylic on linen canvas
30 x 61 cm
The central design in this painting represents the rockhole and soakage water site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Pollock Hills in Western Australia. The lines represent the sandhills surrounding the site. A large group of senior women camped at this rockhole making the nose-bones which are worn through a hole in the nose-web. These nose-bones were originally worn by both men and women but are now only worn by the older generation on ceremonial occasions. The women later travelled east passing through Wala Wala, Ngaminya and Kiwirkurra.

Title: Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa - Fire country Dreaming
Price: $1300.00 in Australia and Export.
PA810, 2016
Acrylic on canvas
61 x 152 cm
This Dreaming belongs to Warlukurlangu country to the south-west of Yuendumu. An old man ‘lungkarda’ (centralian blue-tongued lizard), of the Jampijinpa skin group, lived on a hill with his two Jangala sons. The old man would feign blindness and send the two boys hunting in search of meat. While they were gone he would hunt and eat anything that he caught before they returned. One day the sons returned with a kangaroo that they had caught after much tracking. Unfortunately the kangaroo was sacred to the ‘lungkarda’, unbeknown to the boys. In his anger the old man decided to punish his sons and the next time they went out, he put his fire stick to the ground and sent a huge bush fire after them which chased them for many miles, at times propelling them through the air. Although the boys beat out the flames, lungkarda’s special magic kept the fire alive and it re-appeared out of his blue-tongued lizard hole. Exhausted the boys were finally overcome by the flames. Usually sites that are depicted in paintings of this Jukurrpa include Warlukurlangu (a men’s cave), Kirrkirrmanu (where the sacred kangaroo was killed), Wayililinypa (where the fire killed the two Jangala sons) and Marnimarnu (a water soakage) where the two Jangalas camped

Jack Britten
Title: Toomoogooniji
Price: $7900.00 in Australia and Export.
PA092, 1999
Ochre, clay and charcoal on canvas
120 x 90 cm
On top of the booloo, the black limestone outcrops which traverse the landscape around the Bungle Bungles in the east Kimberley, Jack shows a high ridge with a rock precariously balanced - called Toomoogooninji - that he says was once a hunter who was turned to stone in the Dreamtime. The painting also shows several water holes which are usually part of the Ord River but which in the dry season reduce to a few billabongs. These are the habitat of kalruny, a water spirit that lives in all major bodies of water. Small pink areas represent 'bucket holes' which are found in the sandstone lining the river's bank in places.
