Billy Atkins (Yunkurra) Kumpupirntily Kalyu/jila 2007
Acrylic on canvas
910 x 610mm

"That Ngayurnangalku kumpu (cannibal urine) is good water, you can drink long." This painting shows two Jila (snakes) and the waterholes that were created by the Ngayurnangalku urinating at Kumpupirntily (Lake Disappointment). Despite its origins, these soaks are important sources of water.
