Further information

This painting depicts designs associated with the travels of a large group of women to Ngyila. There are many rockholes at this site, which is just to the north-west of the Kiwirrkura Community. The women are resting at the camp after having gathered tjilpurringa, a seed which is ground and then formed into a damper.
