Piyarryi is the name of some of Eileens father’s country, located in the Great Sandy Desert, south of Balgo. This place takes its name from the tjurrnu, or soakwaters here. Other nearby soaks are also shown, some with a kiliki, or creeks running between them. Among them are also some small warran, or claypans. The outer edges of the painting show the tali, or sand dunes which dominate the landscape of the area.
