This painting is of a story about my father's country 50 Downs, near Amata community. Lots of women were at this site collecting kampurapa (bush tomatoes). A man came along and asked the women for the mai (food), but the women didn't give any to him. So the man had no mai. After the man left and the women fed all the mai to the tjitji (children) and the children were full-up.

The man came back again and the group went together to Pangkupiri, which is near Tjukula and close to Mr. Brumby's mother's country.
