This painting represents the rockhole site of Marrapinti just to the west of the Kiwikurra Community. This site was visited by a large group of women before they continued their travels east, passing over a number of sandhills and a series of rockholes. While at the site they made the rise bones, also known as Marrapinti,which are worn through the hole made in the nose web. These nose bones were originally used by both men and women but are now only inserted by the older generation on ceremonial occasions.Share
