Tjaruwa is always experimental with her artwork and this painting is no exception.

This painting is set in her country amongst the rockholes of Kamanti and Pur Pur and the iwara (raods) or pathways in between.

Tjaruwa wants to say that in the old days people relied on natural objects which they turned into useful tools such as the stone knife. Tjaruwa says that stone knives where all that they had in the early days or time before contact and this was essential for survival.
