Aboriginal Artwork Authenticity

Each painting sold comes accompanied with a certificate of authenticity and where possible a photograph of the artist with the work.


Timmy Payungka Tjapangati c1940 – 2000. Born at Lake Mackay in Western Australia, he and his wife were bought to the government settlement at Papunya in the Northern Territory, from the Kintore region during the early 1960’s. Timmy became one of the original painting men of the Papunya Tula artist group with Geoffrey Bardon. Bardon suspected Timmy to be a Kadaitcha Man, an enforcer of tribal law, because of his knowledge of stories and rituals. Payungka’s Tingari works featured circles which represented sit down places, linked with straight lines for travelling. They were essentially maps of his homeland depicting such things as water, food sources and places of spiritual significance.
