Story from the certificate of authenticity:
Helicopter has depicted his traditional country, located far to the south west of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is near Nynmi and is known as Wangkartu, named from the tjurrnu (soakwater) which was the life source for Helicopter when he was a young man travelling and hunting across the land with his family.

The many parallel lines in the painting represent the tali (sand dunes) which dominate the landscape of the area.
