Size/Medium : 450 x 300mm: acrylic on canvas Painting
This is Lucy’s country a long way south of Balgo close to Punmu in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is called Nyakungtjuungku and is part of the artist’s dreaming. The central circle is a tjurrnu, or soakwater, known as inta, or ‘living water’ as it always holds fresh water. Loomoo says this country is rich with bush tucker. The dotting surrounding the circle represents these bush foods including kantilli or pura (bush tomato).
