A member of the Yuendumu community, here the artist celebrates the Dream of Mina Mina, which belongs to the women in her family. The women of her lineage come here to gather the Ngalyipi (wild vine), a plant used to weave the straps used to carry water containers (Ngami) and the bags in which food is stored. The Ngalyipi is represented on the canvas by liana-shaped motifs. The story of the Dream - or Jukurrpa - associated with this plant is passed on to young men during initiation ceremonies.
