Further Information

This painting depicts Wirrulnga, a rockhole in a small rocky outcrop, east of Kiwirrkura Community. Women camped here before continuing their travels east. Wirrulnga is associated with birth. One of the women on the Napaltjarri family gave birth at the site. The arcs represent rocky outcrops and the sandhills surrounding the area.
