Design: Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming)

This design by Mavis Nampitjinpa Marks shows the ‘Kalipinpa – Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming)’ from north of Kintore. For Aboriginal people of the Western Desert, Kapi (water) is a crucial resource for survival. When the rains arrive in the desert the landscape comes to life with all the desert flowers blooming, bush tucker abundant and people taking advantage of all the joys that water brings.
