Jane has painted her mother’s tjukurrpa (dreaming) of Kinyu, the spirit dog.The brown circles depict the holes where the ancestral spirit dog, Kinyu lived and its pups. During hard times when there was no kuka (meat) or mangarri (vegetable food) the old people would ask Kinyu for food and we would provide kangaroo or bush turkey, anything you wanted. This painting depicts women travelling through the land looking for the food.
