Marpa

This painting depicts Lucy's grandmother's country called Marpa located in the southern Great Sandy Desert.

The central dark circle depicts the big rockhole of Marpa. Surrounding Marpa, in the tali, or sand dune country which dominates here, is shown the abundance of bush food, particularly kantilli, or bush gooseberry and purra, or bush tomato.
