Bess Price Nungurrayi – Malawirri 90cm x 60cm BP129A


In her artistic practice, Bess paints stories associated with The Mala Dreaming (Jukurrpa), a track relating to these paintings began at a place called Mawurrungu in the flat sand and salt lake country to the south-west of Yuendumu and west of Lake Bennett. From there the Mala Ancestors travelled northwards. The important sites on this track are also associated with water. There are seven small rock holes at Mawurrungu. Malawirri was one important place where they stopped, rested and then performed ceremonies.
