Explications pour cette œuvre :

In this painting Tjaruwa Woods has painted Watani, an area in the northern section of the Spinifex Lands. It is sand hill country, with Spinifex and Mulga trees and very sparse water deposits usually in the form of rockholes which are quite small or soak water which you have to dig for.

Tjanpi or Spinifex grasses were used to filter the water for drinking. To survive in this Western Desert area it is essential to know where to find the water and this knowledge has been passed down over thousands of years from generation to generation.

In the Tjukurpa the Emu Creator Beings possess great creative powers. They created numerous topographical features in the landscape as they passed through this area.
