This painting depicts some of Bai Bai's father's country known as Wilbaringu. This place is south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. It shows a hill in the area, with kumpulu seeds growing on the hill top. The women collecting the seeds are depicted as the U shapes.—Warlyirti Artists © Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
