The artist has depicted Minma an area of claypans near Lake MacDonald in the far reaches of the Western Desert beyond Kiwirrkurra. Here the women gather for corroboree wearing hair string and bean seed bands, necklaces and other ceremonial regalia. These are represented by the arc shapes in the paintings. The red and yellow dots represent bush tucker – mainly of the Solanum family which are called Lirda in the local Pintupi language.Share
