Title : Winpurpurla
Size/Medium : 457 x 305mm: acrylic on canvas Painting

Carmel has painted some of her mother’s country south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is named Winpurpurla after the tjurnnu (soakwater) depicted as the central circle in the painting. Winpurpurla is an yinta, or ‘living water’ place so it always has good water. Women often travel to Winpurpurla to collect a variety of seeds including lukarrari which is ground to make damper and kumpupatja (bush tomato). The definite lines in the painting represent the tali (sandhills) that dominate this country.
