This is the country known as Parwalla: Nyumi’s father’s country. Parwalla is far to the south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert, west of Kiwirrkurra. Dominated by Tali (sand hills), Parwalla is a large swampy area, which fills with water after the wet season and therefore produces an abundance of bush foods. The majority of Nyumi’s painting shows the different bush foods, including Kantjilyi (bush raisin), Pura (bush tomato) and Minyili (seed). Women, shown as the U shapes, with their Wana (digging sticks) and Coolamons (vessels) gather the foods. The whitish colours, which dominate the painting, represent both the spinifex and whitish seeds that grow strong after the wet season rains. These white seeds grow so thickly that they obscure the ground and other plants below.
