This painting depicts the artist’s mother’s country at Winparrku, Yumari, west of Kintore. Her mother, Niningka Nampitjinpa (dec), was a strong Walpiri woman. This painting tells the story of the landscape at Winparrku. The circles represent waterholes and rockholes that are found at Winparrku. These waterholes were once an important source of water for people living in the area. Today people at Winparrku enjoy the convenience of a permanent bore.
