This painting depicts the story associated with Jimmy’s Tjukurrpa (dreaming), given to Jimmy by his father. This story is set in Jimmy’s traditional country of Tjukakarrinyu, east of Balgo in the Tanami Desert. The four circles represent yarla (bush yams), the three straight lines are the Tali (sandhills) and the dotting surrounding represent the ngayaki (bush tomato) found in the area.
