Karntawarra is the name of a small rockhole, found on Tossie’s grandmother’s country, noth west of Wilkinkarra, or Lake Mackay, the vast salt lake south of Balgo in The Great Sandy Desert. Karntawarra only holds water after rain, and is shown here in the centre of the painting, dominated by the tali, or sand dunes of the area. This is rocky, hilly country, while the fine dotting depicts the kantilli, or bush raisin that is found here in abundance.
