About Ngura (Country)
This painting references the many Tali (sand hills) that cover a great expanse of the desert regions on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. The incredibly dry conditions and strong desert winds drag loose sand into crests and troughs which form the sand structures, similar to coastal formations. Tali are capable of changing shape – especially during strong wind storms; some Anangu believe that only women can control these winds by holding their arms in the air.
