This painting depicts designs associated with Women’s Ceremonies at the rockhole and soakage water site of Ngaminya, south of the Kiwikurra community in the Gibson Desert, Northern Territory.
A group of women, represented by the ‘U’ shapes, came from the west and made camp at this site. They gathered the edible berries known as kampurarrpa, or desert raisin, from the small shrub Solanum centrale which grows in the area. They later continued their travels further east.
