Elizabeth Marks Nakamarra has been painting for Michael Hollow Aboriginal Desert Art Gallery, in Alice Springs, in Melbourne and also in Sydney.

Aboriginal paintings are based on myths of the Dreamtime. In modern dot representation, the sacred aspect of the painting is not always revealed, but the meaning remains, transmitted through symbols which are easily understood. Each person has particular Dreaming to which they belong and they have special ceremonial dances and songs that combine together to form a unique religion that makes up the lives of the Aboriginal people.

All things related to the land and thus the land is of great importance to them. The land is the keeper of the Dreaming and must be kept safe for all time so that the Dreaming stories, which are told in the paintings, can be preserved.

Ceremonies always involve song, dance and body decoration, The ownership, management and performance is dependent upon knowledge and status. While many ceremonies are open or public, many are secret to varying degrees. The categories of people who can be present are restricted; groups such as women, girls and uninitiated men and strangers would all have limitations placed on them in relation to men's ceremonies; men, boys and uninitiated girls would have similar restrictions placed on them in relation to women's ceremonies.

Kalipimpa Dreaming Women travel, Sand Storm with Lightening

The paintings depicts the journey of ancestral Aboriginal women through Tanami Desert (between Nirripi and Kiwikurra) and suddenly sky turned dark and sand storm whipped around them. The women could barely open their eyes with the force of the wind blowing sand when forks of lightening lit up the sky. Women were fearful of the deafening sharp cracks in the sky and severe dry air burning their skin so they were asking the spirits to find them a refuge.

The painting represents the whole journey of ancestral Aboriginal women. Women travelled through Tanami Desert (between Nirripi and Kiwikurra) and suddenly sky turned dark and sand storm whipped around them. The women could barely open their eyes with the force of the wind blowing sand when forks of lightening lit up the sky.

Women were fearful of the deafening sharp cracks in the sky and severe dry air burning their skin so they were asking the spirits to find them a refuge. The shelter became suddenly visible women stumble on the grotto close by around the rocky mountain range.
