Paintings depict the Tjukurpa, the Law and stories of Ancestors. Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) have responsibilities for the protection and teaching of different Tjukurpa and there are strict protocols for the imparting of knowledge. The dotting technique has evolved with the need to adapt sacred expressions of Tjukurpa for public viewing and as a depiction of the desert landscape.


Minyma Kutjara, the Two Women, travelled the artist's lands during the creation period, hunting and adventuring along the way and forming many aspects of the landscape. They also left behind information still used today about the important rituals and work of women.

Lolita is 11 years old and has been handed down Tjukurpa from her grandmother and mother.
