The pictures are of authors who have roots in the artistic movement of the Western Desert (Desert Western), that includes the native artists of the immense territory (600,000 kilometers squared, almost 100,000 more than Spain) of the same name, great part occupied by desert zones (Desert of Gibson, Great Sandy Desert and Small Sandy Desert). The miracle of Papunya the contemporary explosion of the artist-natives of the Australian west was born in the small locality of Papunya, 240 kilometers to the northwest of Stakes out Springs, a remote place and desolated that the authorities had designated, at the end of the decade of 1960, as unavoidable destiny of displaced natives to the force. The teacher of the small school of the place, Geoffrey Bardon suggested in 1971 a neighbor group who painted one of the outer walls of the enclosure.

The pictures of the artists represented, all realised during the first decade of the 21st century and with modern equipments (plastic acrylic painting, for example), " they resonate with the power of old and the new thing to tell tjukurrpa (histories) " , they say. The title Living Water (living Water) describes the capacity of the artist to represent the underground water obstacles and to travel through them of a spiritual way.
