    LITERATURE:
    Geoffrey Bardon and James Bardon, Papunya, A Place Made After the Story: The Beginnings of the Western Desert Painting Movement, Melbourne: The Miegunyah Press, 2004, p.252, ptg.174 (illus.).

    The story depicts Two Brothers in search of fruit. The meandering lines throughout the composition depict the Brothers' journey, concentric circles their camp sites and varied dotting the wind which blows the fruit from the trees. This example was one of the works Tjapaltjarri executed at Geoffrey Bardon's family home in Randwick, Sydney, when the artist painted his significant Moon Dreaming series for the documentary film Mick and the Moon directed by Geoffrey Bardon (ibid, p.252).
