Cover image: This 40 x 60cm painting is by Mick Namerari Tjapaltjarri, a Pintupi man born c.1925. Painted in 1978, it depicts the rising sun on the right hand side, with the daylight behind it, chasing away the black night on the left. The central circles are labelled a ‘special place’ and the white dots are painted stones, although they could also be seen as stars or campfires.
