Explications pour cette œuvre :

This painting portrays the area around Jigalong Community, where Mabel Mitutu lived for several years after moving in from the desert, and away from her pujiman (desert dwelling) life. Today Jigalong is the largest Martu community, and is situated not far from Newman.

Depicted here is all the country around “Old Jigalong”; the dominant tali (sandhills), warta (trees, vegetation), and various types of water sources. Old Jigalong is where the camp on Jigalong Station was situated before the present community was built.

Mabel was born in the 1920s at Yirajara, which is near Jurntu Jurntu. Her parents were both Warnman people whose country encompassed Tarl and Nayijara. Mabel grew up in the pujiman (bush) way through her teens and as an adult, she walked into Jigalong Mission. She paints her ngurra (home) and her warrarn (country) to teach the young so that they can learn to paint, too.
