This painting portrays part of the artist’s country where her and her family lived traditionally during the pujiman (bush) days. They lived very nomadically moving from water source to water source hunting and gathering bush tucker as they went. Primarily the artist’s family would travel up and down the Canning Stock Route and around the Parnngurr area traversing very large distances, visiting some areas in the dry and some in the wet season depending on the availability of water. As they travelled and hunted they would also burn areas of country creating a larger diversity of plant and animal life.
