Story: 'Wati Inma - Men's Ceremony' by Rama Sampson. Rama’s painting 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.
