Explications pour cette œuvre :

"This one lake. Too much minyarra (bush onions)! My ngurra (home Country) here."
This painting depicts Kartarru, also known as Well 24 on the Canning Stock Route. Kartarru is an important site in the Minyi Puru (Seven Sisters) jukurrpa (dreamtime) narrative.

In the epic story, seven sisters travel throughout the desert, running
away from a lustful old man called Yurla. The man chases the wanti (women) all the way from Roebourne on the west coast of Australia right through Martu country, before flying far east.

Along the way they stop at many significant sites to camp, sing, dance and collect bush tucker, leaving behind markers in the landscape as they travel. The Minyi Puru danced at Kartarru before flying away from Yurla to Nyipily (near Well 34).
