Tjemma (Freda) Napanangka Ngunjinjarra 2002
Acrylic on canvas
1200 x 800mm

This painting depicts some of the country for Tjemma's mother. This country is known as Ngunjinjarra, and is located south of Yagga Yagga in The Great Sandy Desert. The small circle is the soakwater known as Ngunjinjarra. Surrounding the tjumu, or soakwater can be found mulilpa, a small bush seed used for making flour for damper. Sitting below the soakwater are men singing and a row of women who are dancing for young boys. Later the boys would be taught to hunt by the men. The majority of the painting shows tali or sandhills which predominate this country.
