    This work is accompanied by a certificate from Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs, which states: ‘The circles in this painting depict rockholes and soakage water sites at the claypan site of Watanuma, north-west of the Kintore Community. The lines represent nyimparra or hair-string skirts. These were made by a group of women, who camped at this site before travelling to the rockhole site of Malparingya and continuing east to Pinari, also north-west of Kintore. While at Watanuma the women gathered the seeds known as mungilypa or samphire from the small fleshy sub-shrub Tecticomia verrucosa. These seeds are ground into a paste which is cooked in the coals to form a type of unleavened bread.’
