This paintings depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Marrapinti, to the west of the Kiwirrkura Community. A large group of senior women camped at this rockhole making the nose-bones, also known as Marrapinti, which are worn through a hole in the nose-web. These nose-bones were originally won by both men and women but are now only worn by the older generation on ceremonial occasions. The women later travelled east passing through the Kiwirrkura area.
