Description

Thomas has painted his Tingari Cycle - with a black background, red lineal work forming the squares, with white dotting in-between.

This painting depicts the mythological sacred sites passed down to him from his ancestors. Tingari Cycle dreaming stories are only passed on to initiated men. Thomas is the younger brother of Warlimpirrnga, and Walala Tjapaltjarri - he is one of the last nine Pintupi Nomads to come in from the desert in 1984.
