Watiya Tjuta at Talaalpi by Alice Nampitjinpa Dixon

This design shows the acacia trees in Kumuntjai's country, Talaalpi, which is located beyond the Kintore/Kiwikurra road near the West Australian and Northern Territory border. This is the country where her father and mother used to travel by foot when she was a young girl. The place was of great spiritual significance to Kumuntjai and her father’s family as it contains both, personal and tribal law to which Kumuntjai related in her work. When it rains at Taalalpi, water collects between the sandhills, providing sustenance for her porcupine.

Tjilkamata (porcupine) is Kumuntjai's own personal Tjukurrpa (Dreaming).

She returned to her country for a visit in late 2005.
