Kungka Tjukurrpa at Ilpilli
This painting represents the sacred site of Ilpilli, Napurrulas’ country, which is located between Mt Liebig and Kintore. Karen McDonald’s ancestors (the Napurrula women) were travelling across land searching for water and came upon this site. They discovered rock holes with water and a creek, which meant there was plenty of food around. This became a significant place and they remained there for a long time. Eventually the missionaries came and took them to Haasts Bluff.
