Details

This print depicts some of Lucy’s country far to the south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is known as Punyanita and is named for the soakwater, or tjurrnu, featured in the centre of the painting. Tali, or sand dunes dominate the landscape of the area, while purra (bush tomato), tjunta (bush onion) and karnti (bush potato) are commonly found here. The small dots depict the variety of these foods. The U shapes represent women performing ceremony to ensure the bush foods will remain abundant and maintain their strong connections with country.
