Kawayi Napitjinpa

This painting represents the rockhole and soakage water site of Pinari, north-west of the Kintore Community.  During mythological times a group of women camped at this site after travelling east from the rockhole site of Malparingya.

This site is also associated with the travels of a Wanampi (water snake) to the lake site of Pinpirrnga (Desert Bore).  The snake travelled underground to Pinari to avoid any contact with it's enemies.  In the process the snake created a large tali (sandhill) throughout this area.  The lines in this painting depict the tali.
