This painting depicts the objects and story associated with Jimmy's Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) which is karnti
(bush potato).
This story is set in Jimmy's traditional country of Tjukukalyu, east of Balgo in the Tanami
Desert.
The central shape represents the karnti vine after the dry season fires. The u shapes represent
people, while the patterning surrounding the karnti depict the ground after a bushfire.
