Tingari Cycle

NB This design is slightly less than 140 cm wide, it is actually 1.36m wide. This one is hand died, not digitally printed. It has therefore the design on both sides; it doesn’t have the typical white backside. This makes it suitable for a lot of different applications, like scarves etc.


During the creation era, Tingari ancestors gathered at a series of sites for Initiation Ceremonies. They travelled from across the country, performing rituals at specific sites that created the natural features of the landscape. The creation stories and rituals are still portrayed in song cycles, paintings and ceremonies and are part of the continuous teaching to the next generation. In painting Tingari Cycle, Thomas Tjapaltjarri is depicting the song cycle associated with the artist’s many dreaming sites and the locations of significant natural sites in the Gibson Desert.
