    PROVENANCE: Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs, Northern Territory; Private collection, Switzerland, acquired from the above in January 1992. This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Papunya Tula Artists which states: ‘This painting depicts designs associated with the travels of the Tingari Men from Kintore west to the claypan site of Malka to the south-east of the Kiwirrkura Community. The arcs represent men of the Tjangala kinship subsection who travelled either side of one Tjapanangka man who travelled underground. As events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret nature no further detail was given. Generally, the Tingari are a group of mythical characters of the Dreaming, who travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites. The Tingari men were usually followed by Tingari women and accompanied by novices and their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles. These mythologies form part of the teachings of the post­initiate youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.'
