From the age of four, Magda was brought up at Old Balgo Mission and only saw her parents once a year. She thought about her mother’s country, east of Yagga Yagga and this painting depicts some aspects of that place. This country is known as Nakarra Nakarra and Mungai Mungai, after the small hills, or parma, which are the groups of three circles at each end of the painting. The central shape depicts an ants nest and tracks.
