Story from the certificate of authenticity:

When I am painting I am thinking about the Tjukurrpa that all the ladies know - the minyma kutjara.  This country has strong culture.  I am painting those ladies travelling through that gap near Kaltukatjara and at Walka, my homeland. The ladies came all the way from South Australia.  Those ladies are travelling through the landscape and they are changing as they travel.  At Walka what that scary walpa (wind) comes through, they transform so they can hide.  I am only painting a little bit of this story, the part that is right here.  I am painting Kapi (rockholes), tali (sandhills), puli (hills) and karru (creek) of this place
