The main motif of this painting depicts the Wakirlpirri (Dogwood – Acacia coriacea) tree. Wakirlpirri is a very useful tree that grows on the sides of creek beds and near Mulga trees. The seeds can be eaten raw or they can be cooked on the fire and a deliciously sweet drink called Yinjirrpi. The wood can be used to make Karli (boomerangs).
