This is Lucy’s mother and father’s country and is named Yarlintjirri. This country is a long way south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. Lucy has painted kalyu Tjukurrpa (water Dreaming). The central circles are important rockholes that were a vital source of water for her family. These waterholes are spring water which means it is living and never runs dry. The surrounding lines indicate tali (sanddunes) which are dominant in this country. Lucy explains there is plenty of food in this country such as kantjilyi (bush raisin), pura (bush tomato) or walku (bush apple) and minyunkurra.
