About this artwork
Kuluntjarra is a salt lake about twenty kilometres west of Patjarr. It was created by two men (Wati Kutjarra Tjukurrpa) who were hunting and camping at Wanaritjarra, a small but deep rockhole near the lake. The two men found mingkurrpa (native tobacco) growing around the lake, which they picked and chewed. it was too strong and made them very sick. They started to sweat and then throw up. They vomited copiously and created the salt lake which is always soft on top.
