Yirrajarra; that’s my camp, that’s my place, that’s my Country”

Yirrajarra is Mabel Mitutu’s ngurra (home); it is where the artist was born and is her Country. It is a soak situated on the Canning Stock Route. It is a continuous source of good fresh water, surrounded by plentiful shade, which made it an important semi-permanent camping ground during the pujiman (traditional, desert dwelling) era. Having walked all of this country with her family in her youth, Mabel Mitutu is able to depict intimate knowledge of the region and its features in detail.
