Bambatu Napangardi
Language: Pintupi
Country: Kintore N.T.
Bambatu Napangardi grew up in the bush living a traditional life with her family, hunting and living off the land, while visiting relatives she met her future husband Dinni Campbell Tjampitjinpa. Dinni Campbell's older brother was one of the original artists painting in Papunya. Bambatu Napangardi was an apprentice to Dinni Campbell for many years; she started painting her own dreamtime stories passed on to her by her Mother and her Father and also her famous husband. Bambatu depicts in her work the ceremonial journeys of her ancestral women. Her "Kungka Tjukurrpa" paintings depict the journey paths travelled at each location; the women would stop, dance and sing the cycle of each sacred site. The concentric circles represent waterholes, and the parallel dotted lines represent the path travelled.
