Explications pour cette œuvre :

This work portrays an area around a lyinji (clay pan) named Jarntinti, not far from Punmu. Mulyatingki grew up around this area with her family and sisters, Nyanjilpayi Nancy Chapman and May Wokka Chapman.

Mulyatingki’s sister Nyanjilpayi was born at Jarntinti. In the pujiman (bush dwelling) era, the black seeds from the kalaru (samphire, salt bush) plant were seasonally harvested from this area. Once collected a labour intensive process began to produce damper, a type of flat bread.

The kalaru seeds were first washed several times before being ground with a jiwa (stones used by women for grinding seeds) to make a type of flour, which was then mixed with water to create a dough that was finally cooked in the ashes of a fire.

“This one big claypan near Punmu. Plenty of bush tucker there, plenty kalaru. You can find him biggest mob there. Get him kalaru, grind it and make damper. Get him up and wash him, wash him, wash him, [then] grind him flour. Cook him up, make a damper.”
