Winpurpurla

Christine has painted Winpurpurla, her mother’s country south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. Women often travel to Winpurpurla to collect a variety of seeds including lukarrari which is ground to make damper and kumpupatja (bush tomato). Winpurpurla is named after the tjurnnu (soakwater) or 'living water' depicted as the central circle in her painting bordered by multiple lines representing the tali (sandhills) that dominate the country there.
