Dulcie has painted Karlyapilyirra a site close to Piparr, south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. The white circle is a saltpan, surrounded by sandhills that shift with the seasons.
The swirls indicate the saltpans, surrounded by Tali (sandhills), the orange radiating lines that move and shift with the seasons. The patterns and dotting show the different ochres found at Piparr, used by people for body painting at ceremony.
