About Kapi Dreaming, Karrinyarra
'This painting is a story about Kapi (water) Karrinyarra (Central Mt Wedge) out Papunya way - soakage). Our dreaming from my uncle's (mother's brother's) side, private story. This painting represents Water Dreaming (also called Kapi or Ngapa Tjukurrpa) from Karrinyarra and Central Mt Wedge, north of Papunya. The circles are the water courses. This site is associated with rain making ceremonies.

The clan estate or country known as Karrinyarra lies between Yuendumu to the north and Papunya to the south. Karrinyarra actually takes in a wider region that includes much of the Stuart Bluff Range and is bounded to the west by the Siddeley Range.
