In the late 1990s Nyumi adopted her current signature style of 'smudged' continuous lines of dotting with the introduction of bold, bright forms. The striking iridescent shapes of unusual mollusc-like and arched forms are inserted against the shimmering cream ground. These works often represent Parwalla, the site of Nungurrayi's father's country and the bush food collected by the women with their digging sticks. It was these salient paintings which caused her to be the first artist from Waralyirti Artists to exhibit at the Sydney Biennale in 2004.
This painting is sold with Warlayirti Artists documentation.
