    This painting is sold with accompanying documentation from Kayili Artists that reads in part: 'Tjamu Tjamu is east of Kiwirrkurra. It's the artist's father's country and part of the tingari. There is a rockhole there and it is the place a group of ladies camped with one wati. He was the kangaroo ancestor and the ladies were his sisters, aunties, mothers and grandmothers. He wanted all the ladies to be his wives. He came along from the north and called the ladies to come and camp with him. They wanted to call him Tjamu Tjamu (grandfather, grandson) but he wanted to be called Kurril Kurril (keep as a spouse someone who is not eligible) which is the name given to a rockhole at this place.'
