Explications pour cette œuvre :

“Yirajarra, that’s my camp, that’s my place, that’s my country”
Yirajarra is the artists Ngurra (home); it is where the artist was born and is her place. It is a soak situated on the Canning Stock Route, there is Good fresh water there all year round and shade which makes it a decent camp spot. During the Pujiman (bush) days the artist was walking all of this country with her family.

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.
