"Kalaya tjuta (many emus) near Kanpi community. This is rocky country where the emus are sitting, hiding. This is called Kalayangurarinya which means the emu's home. All the emu chicks are practising Inma (ceremonial dancing and singing). The lines in the pianitng are the tracks the chicks left from their dancing. The Inma is in red and white. They came together in a windbreak called palkara. The other section of the canvas are the emus travelling for food. They travelled everywhere eating bush fruits and berries." Artist Statement
