    About this artwork

    The painting depicts a site called Warmurunngu where the people collect Kaarku (coloured ochres) used in Inma (ceremonies). When the colours are excavated the spirits of the Karlaya (emus) are released like a Warlpa (wind) and take physical form. There are many Karlaya in the area. The centre of the concentric circles shows where the Karlaya stopped to drink Kapi (water) in the Tjukurpa (dreaming) time.
