Artist : Debra McDonald Nangala
Debra McDonald Nangala was born at Papunya Camp located west of Alice Springs. She is a Pintupi women whose ancestors come from Lake MacDonald in the Gibson Desert, Central Australia. Debra comes from a lineage of exceptional artists. The granddaughter of the renowned Shortly Lungkata Tjungrrayi the stories featured in her art refer to his country of Lake MacDonald, and her work has been documented in Geoffrey & James Bardon's book "Papunya A Place Made After the Story. The Beginning of the Western Desert Painting Movement"

Unlike many Aboriginal artists whose work references scared ceremonies, Debra's work reflects on the everyday life of her people. The big circle featured in her art represents the entrance to the Goanna's home.The goanna digs tunnels ( represented in her art as small circles ) under the ground where it lays eggs. The tracks that run from nest to nest are the Aboriginal People following the tunnels to get to the Goanna's Eggs, which is considered to be good bush tucker.
