Rama’s original painting from which this design is drawn, illustrates people sitting at an inma (ceremony) out Pipalyatjara way. There are wati tjuta, munu minma, munu tjiti tjuta, walytja tjuta (many men, women, children and families) sitting, singing and talking – each circle represents a person. This is taking place in Rama’s country, Kuntjanu, and all the people are looking to see what is going to take place. Rama has a deep understanding of important traditional Kuntjanu tjukurrpa stories, his homeland. His paintings illustrate the many aspects of the Wanampi Tjukurpa – Rainbow Serpent Dreaming.

Willie’s painting is of his country in the remote north western South Australia on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands. This painting describes Tjurkurrpa – creation story. There are two wati – men sitting either side of the rockhole in the middle of the painting.

Hand dyed, chain stitched wool finished with a heavy cotton backing. This cushion cover is born of a cross cultural collaboration between Aboriginal artists and traditional Kashmiri weavers through Better World Arts, certified 'Fair Traders of Australia'.

Purchase of this cushion cover directly benefits the artists and and their communities, control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained.
