Further information

This painting depicts designs associated with the rock hole and soakage water site of Winpupula, north-west of the Kiwirrkura Community. A large group of women travelled to this site to gather Ngurlan, a sweet edible berry and Pura, a fruit the size of a small apricot. These fruits are plentiful in this region when in season.
