Mitjili Napurrula
$7,500

Mitjili Napurrula is a Pintupi woman from the Haasts Bluff region, located 200 km west of Alice Springs in Central Australia. She is half-sister to renowned indigenous artist Turkey Tjupurrula Tolson and is also a custodian of the Kulata (Spear) Tjukurrpa story.

Mitjili’s works are characterised by bold colour and strikingly original forms and she often depicts the country around Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji) in the Kintore Ranges. The iconography that Mitjili uses in many of her paintings represents the women's side of the Tjukurrpa story, showing the trees (Watiya) that provide the wood for spear shafts and other objects. Her brother Turkey Tolsen painted the Dreaming associated with the spear making itself.
