Harry Tjutjuna Mututa Tjukurpa 2009
Acrylic on linen

That minyma ninu (bilby woman) and her family were eating all the maku (witchetty grubs). There are a lot of different maku, tjilka-tjilka, punti, ngarkalya and kanturangu. She ate so much that there were only ngingirpa left (little immature ones). The wati mututa (ant men) got really angry and they chased the bilby family, husband, wife and kids and speared them. They came marching all together.
