This painting was made after the Arulya camp to tell the story of the Tjurkupa and the journey to and from sacred sites the artists visited on the road between Kalka community where the art centre is housed and Watarru protected area. This canvas is a collaborative work made by Carol Young, Thomas Murray, Jennifer Connolly, Nyanu Watson, and David Miller at Kuntjanu homelands, 80 kms southwest of Pipalyatjara community as part of the Aralya Project painting camp in late 2018. The project was an intergenerational expedition guided by Ngangkari and cultural leader Josephine Mick, whose family are traditional owners of the lands on which the camp was based. Many artists were accompanied by children and grandchildren, some of whom were experiencing the sites for the first time. For Ninuku this would be their first formal painting project on country as a studio. The final body of works were shown at "The Aralya Project" exhibition at Tarnanthi Festival, 2019.
