Kachinpinta means young girl in language. This artwork shows the journey a girl makes from childhood to adulthood and the support of family she has along the way, particularly the support of fellow women.
In culture the younger sister, niece or cousin is nurtured by those who are older than her. When she comes of age she is included in the women’s circle and women’s business is shared with her.
This artwork represents all the trials and tribulations that girl will overcome and how her family will always be close by helping her along. It shows how her character will develop as life trials her, and how she will become strong and brave through it all.
