This painting depicts designs associated with the site of Tjukula, near where the Community now stands. The line throught the centre of the work represents a creek at the site and the lines at either side show a lake and sandhills. A number of women camped in the area gathering the edible berries known as kampurarrpa or desert raisin from the small shrub Solanum centrale.
