Pauline has painted some of her father’s country. Pauline’s father, Sunfly Tjampitjin, was a senior custodian for country south of Balgo, near vast salt lake of Wilkinkarra (Lake MacKay). Pauline has painted a woman’s tjukurrpa (dreaming)/business. Women (the two U shapes) are searching for me, calling out for them, looking for them though they had no luck. The connecting circles represent the women’s camps and the journey they took to look for the men, the smaller circles indicate where the men’s camps were.
