About Anamaruku Piti Tjuta
Anamaruku Piti Tjuta ( Caterpillar Dreaming)
Maringka’s country is in the far western region of the APY Lands, close to the West Australian border. The dreaming story of the caterpillar is special to that area and Maringka often paints themes of this story into her canvas.The small green and white caterpillars burrow tunnels and holes into the earth which leaves behind patterns on the surface of the desert sands. This intricate repetition of detailed twists and curls in the red dirt is portrayed in Maringka’s paintings.
