Sophisticated, perceived linear abstraction, typifies Pintupi works that are, however, deeply entrenched in landscape, sacred lore and ceremony.
This particular work by Yukultji Napangardi represents the flora and the movement of the winds over the sand hills of her sacred country.
It was in 1984 that the very last Pintupi family group walked into Kiwirrkura from the desert having lived a completely traditional hunter-gather lifestyle up until then. Known as the Pintupi nine, amongst them were the now renowned artists, Warlimpirrigna and Walala Tjapaltji Napangardi.
