This artwork was made in response to books and illustrations that are a part of the Papunya school archive. During the 1980’s the Papunya Literature production centre operated out of the Papunya School. The program was founded through a value of bilingual education and during the project's time its cohort published over 500 bilingual titles using an acquired offset printing machine, photographic equipment and darkroom. Among its collective were many Papunya Tjupi artists including Kumanytjayi Nangala, Charlotte Phillipus, Narlie Nelson, Dennis Nelson and Linda Anderson and the sons and daughters of the original founding artists in Papunya. The group published a variety of stories including traditional tales, snapshots of life as well as early educational tools. It is from this rich history that these artists have drawn on to produce new works and reflections of Papunya’s print history old and new.
