This wonderful Headsox design is by Papunya Tjupi Arts artist Tilau Nangala. The design relates to a place called Mikantji, an important Water Dreaming site, west of Yuendumu (Northern Territory) whose custodians are the Nangala and Nampitjimpa women and their brothers the Tjangala and Tjimpitjimpa men. The painting tells how the women perform ceremonies or inna celebrating the creation of the Mikantji site by the storm ancestors. The U shapes are women, cycles are waterholes, long sinuous lines are creeks and short curved lines are puuli or hills
