    This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Warlayirti Artists, Balgo Hills which states: 'Carmel has painted her mother's country south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. This country here is named Winpurpurla after the tjurrnu (soakwater) depicted as the central circle. Winpurpurla is an inta, or 'living water' place so it always has good water. Women travel to Winpurpurla to collect a variety of seeds including lukarrari which is ground to make damper as well as kumpupatja (bush tomato) and karnti (bush potato). Carmel has depicted the country alive with wildflowers as represented by the smaller dots.'
