2008 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Art Award
The winner of this year's award is Makinti Napananka, a Pintupi woman from the tiny western desert community of Kintore in the Northern Territory. Kintore is one of the communities in the Papunya Tula Art Movement.
Although Mikinti is probably in her late 70s, she has only been painting for about 12 years.
Her untitled picture depicts a rockhole near Kintore.
