Explications pour cette œuvre :

“Ngurra me, my ngurra (this is my country, my home). Mummy mili Pitu and Kulilu (my mother's home country is around the permanent waterholes of Pitu and Kulilu).

This painting depicts Pitu (Separation Well), an area east of Parnngurr in the Western Desert, not far from the Canning Stock Route (in between wells 27 & 28).

Jakayu was born at Pitu. It is her country, as well as the site of a warla (lake) and large jurnu (rockhole). Also depicted is the nearby soak, Kulilu, Jakayu’s mother’s Country. Jakayu and her family travelled throughout this country extensively during the pujiman (bush dwelling) era.

The painter primarily paints her country around the Canning Stock Route. In the Pujiman time (Bush days) the artist travelled with her family through the land collecting wiylki (seeds) just as the Minyi Puru (Seven Sisters) did in the Jukurrpa (Dreamtime). Now they collect grass for baskets as well, Puntayarra and Minarri are two of the names for grasses that the artists use to make baskets. Some of the special places the grasses grow in the artist’s country are Wangkakarlu, Turngul, Matilirri, Wantili, Nyilangkurr and Warrki.
