This is a fabulous triptych, each panel measuring 76 x 76 cm, becomes a stunning aerial landscape of 76 cm by 228 cm - 3 metres long on a wall. It is like an aerial perspective with the sun reflecting on the rocky outcrops of Pirlinyanu with a river running through it and the rock holes full of water.

The story behind the painting is Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming), which is associated with her father’s traditional country of Pirlinyanu, west of Yuendumu and towards the Western Australia border.

Ownership of country is passed down from the father (patrilineal) and ritual knowledge is passed on from auntie to niece (father’s sisters). In this case it is those of the Nampijinpa and Nangala sub-section groups.
