This painting is a topographical view of the many rockholes located in the country surrounding Kaltukatjara (Docker River) and Puta Puta, near Rosalind’s birthplace. These rockholes are a vital source of drinking water for the people of Kaltukatjara and have supported their community for many, many years. Rosalind says, “Water is very important. When the rain comes, it fills up the rockholes. The people know where to go to find the water.”
