Ningie has painted some of her traditional country far to the south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert, called Lawirri. The upper circular shape indicated a tjurnu (soakwater) called Tjurtana. The lower circle is Yulu tjurnu, another soak water. This is the country of Ningie’s youth, where she would walk with her family collecting bush tucker and camping.
