Rosalind Dixon Nungurrayi
Rosalind Dixon Napangardi was born near Town Bore Creek, east of Papunya in the early 1970’s. Rosalind is a Warlpiri woman who recognises the area around Haasts Bluff, where she grew up, as her home country. She paints designs associated with traditional women’s ceremony, including body painting motifs and the woven hair string belts that are used in the ceremony. The women trace the designs onto their bodies, singing as each woman takes her turn to be ‘painted up’. Their songs relate to the Tjukurrpa Dreaming stories of ancestral Creation beings who travelled the country and brought into being all the features of the landscape and natural world.
