This painting depicts some of my mothers traditional country which is located North of Balgo close to Sturt Creek. In this area bush tobacco is found. In the tjukurrpa two Nungurrayi women were grinding lukarra seeds when they saw a fire approaching. They tried to hide and comfort each other as well as sing and dance that fire away. But they got burnt turning into minyani trees which bear a small fruit. The three circles show the fire.
