Brandy Tjungurray is represented in a number of Australian museums and has exhibited in numerous galleries throughout Australia. The painting characterizes a site in the artists' country Nyilla, north of Jupiter Well in West Australia. During mythological times, ancestral figures in their travels, performed rituals and also shaped sites as they dragged bushes behind themselves to help create a large plain. The artist employed linear and circular shapes to incorporate Tingari teachings as an explanation for certain customs in the community.
