Reva paints for the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation located at the Yuendumu community 300km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. Established in 1985, Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a fully Aboriginal owned and governed art centre with over 600 members. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of all art works go directly back to the artists and their community projects.

The art centre is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings with many of its members work collectable having been featured in hundreds of exhibitions both in Australia and around the world .The art centre is both a stronghold of traditional Warlpiri culture and an essential part of Yuendumu's community life.

'Ngalyipi' is a green creeper which curls its tendrils around the trunks and  branches of trees and has many uses. Traditionally it  was used as a strap to carry 'parraja' (wooden food carrying dishes), as a cure for headaches (it was  wrapped very tightly around the head), as a rope and as  a ceremonial wrap during the 'witi' ceremony for the initiation of boys. Ngalypi' was also used to tie ceremonial poles to the legs of the young initiates. The  women danced and sang at the ceremony and then had to look away and block their ears when the men danced.  The witi ceremony happened at night under the stage.
