Michael has painted his father’s Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) which has been passed on to him. It is the Kunandru or bush bean Dreaming associated with the Tjakamarra/Tjupurrula skin groups. The circles indicate the trees from which the Kunandru grows, while the curling lines are the roots of the plant. The green beans painted are the raw or young beans, while the black ones are the dry or cooked beans.
