Nym Bunduk was born around 1903 and grew up to be an influential bark artist and cultural elder of the Murrinhapatha people. He lived most his life around Port Keats (Wadeye) and had strong cultural contacts with inland desert groups. This relationship with inland desert Aboriginals is evident in many of his best works which have concentric circles depicting waterholes within his clans lands. In this work the artist has depicted totemic wells near his birthplace.
