This Limited Edition Etching shows yet another development in the ever-evolving style of Dorothy Napangardi. As with all of this artist’s works, this print revolves around the sacred site of Mina Mina, the land in the remote Tanami Desert of which Dorothy is custodial owner. Made up of two enormous soakage areas and endless sandhills, here Dorothy and her aunts (Napanangkas) perform rituals of dance and song as part of their passing on of Jukurrpa.

Dorothy describes this striking design of black dotting set on a white background, as when one walks softly and gently like a Bilby, the totem ancestor of the salt lakes of where she was born.
