Yaritji Heffernan

Yaritji Heffernan was born in 1955 at Mulga Park Station near Pukutja in the far north-west of South Australia. Her parents were both Pitjantjatjara; her father was from Angkatja and her mother was from Umutju. She moved to Adelaide in 2010.

The circles of this design represent rock holes, where water collects after the rains. These rock holes were an important source of water during the dry season when most of the waterholes and creeks dried up. Water is an essential element in the desert. Knowledge of rock hole sites is passed on from generation to generation and revered by all Pitjantjatjara Aṉangu (people).
