The site for this Dreaming is Yumari, a collection of rocks west of Kintore in the Gibson Desert. Yumari is the site of a forbidden love union between a Japaljarri man and a Nangala woman. This Dreaming was passed down to the artist by a Pintupi man. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional icongraphy is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. In this work concentric circles are often used to represent 'warnirri' (rock holes).
