Tjunka Lewis is from Papulankutja/Blackstone. He is famous for his beautiful wood carving and spear making. He worked for many years in Blackstone and originally painted with Papulankutja Artists until he went to Wanarn.
This painting is from Tjunka’s country near Wakalpuka. It’s a story about the Patjarrtja (native quoll, sometimes referred to as a native cat). This animal was travelling around. You can not find the Patjarrtja anymore, they have become extinct from this region. Too many wild feral cats.
