Imelda (Yukenbarri) Gugaman Winpurpurla 2006
Acrylic on canvas 500 x 750mm SOLD
Imelda has depicted her mother's country south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country here is named
Winpurpurla after a tjurrnu (soakwater). Winpurpurla is an inta (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). Imelda is the first child born to Helicopter Tjungurrayi
and Lucy Yukenbarri.
