Elizabeth Marks is from the Papunya community where contemporary Aboriginal painting was born in 1970. She likes to depict sacred territories once traversed by her Great Ancestors: here, the area around Kalipinpa, a waterhole once filled by a tremendous flood whose many lightning bolts shattered the rock. Today, this beneficent deluge is still celebrated with various ceremonies in Kalipinpa, painted here in the form of a highly stylised satellite view. This type of work insists on the sacred dimension of the place it evokes by deliberately eliminating any figurative or "picturesque" element as if to preserve its mystery.

Aboriginal painting accompanied by the certificate of authenticity n°EM0802072 from the Papunya Tula Pty. Ltd.
