Kungka Kutjara

This painting depicts Kungka Kutjara, meaning Two Women, and is one of the most significant Tjukurpa stories of the Western Desert region. It tells the story of two sisters travelling through the desert. As they travelled, their actions created landmarks such as rock holes and mountain ranges, forging a record of their travels across the land. The story involves sensitive information that only women are allowed to know, therefore the fine details cannot be published here.
