Exhibited Songlines Coo-ee Christmas 2012, Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery, NSW Sydney December 2012 Story The site for this dreaming is Yumari, a collection of rocks west of Kintore in the Gibson Desert. Yumari is the site of a forbidden love union between a Japaljarri man and a Nangala woman. This dreaming was passed down to the artist by a Pintupi man.
In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements and in this work concentric circles represent Warnirri (rock holes).
