This painting shows the artist’s Tjukurrpa, the Tali Tali Dreaming. It refers to the vast and desolate sandhills of her country nearTaalalpi, which is located beyond the Kintore/Kiwikurra road near the West Australian and Northern Territory border. This is thecountry where her father and mother used to travel by foot when she was a young girl. The place is still of great spiritualsignificance to Alice and her father’s family as it contains both, personal and tribal law to which Alice relates in her work. Waterhas collected in between the sandhills, providing sustenance for her porcupine. The tjikamamta (porcupine) is Alice’s own personaltjukurrpa (dreaming). She returned to her country for a visit in late 2005.
