Patju has depicted the site of Kamina, a significant site of the Kalaya Tjuta Tjukurpa (Many Emu Creation Line). Here at Kamina is where a pair of Nyulu (Golden Bandicoot) reside and after hunting and spearing an emu, they set about cooking it. But as the flesh begins to heat, a huge Wanampi ruptures from the emu's stomach and goes underground. This was a magical emu, part of the Kalaya Tjuta, many emu that traversed the country from east to west. These were Creation beings, shape shifters and men all at once who shaped the landscape as the moved through it. This is country close to Watarru.
