Description: This traditional vibrant design with soul depicts the travels of Kutungka, an old woman as she collects bush tucker surrounded by Tali (Sand hills) in the area of Pupunga. While in the area they also gathered the mungilypa or samphire seeds from the small fleshy sub-shrub Tecticornia verrucosa and the edible berries known as kampurarrpa or desert raisin from the small shrub Solanum centrale. These seeds and berries were used to make damper. While at the site the women made hair-string with which to make nyimparra (hair-string skirts) worn during these sacred ceremonies in the area of the artist’s birthplace. Comes with photo of Walangkura holding her work plus 11 working photos.
