a huge tunnel that runs through the ground in the Mangari country. The Ngaanyatjarra people call the site ‘Kuru Yurltu’
– meaning ‘Hollow Eye’. This cavern-like tunnel holds a large body of water, and is the the physical representatoon of a
dreamtime story in which a man is speared through the torso as punishment for a crime. This tunnel represents the hole in the man’s body after being speared.
