Story from the certificate of authenticity:
These waterholes are of Ngamurru. Ngamurru is my home. It is not like a spring - the waterhole dries out after a while. At these waterholes, many women were staying here for a short while  in the creation time (Dreamtime). These women were Nangala, my mother's. Another group of women, a group of Nungurrayi and Nangala were travelling to Marrpirnti/Kiwirrkura while the Nangala women were at Ngamurru
. At Ngamurru the Nangala women collected ,cooked and ate the bush tucker wanpurru that grows on sandhills. They then set off to the east to Papun and Ngartan.
