'Eubena has painted Kinyu the site of her spirit dog totem. The dividing line at the bottom of the work depicts the Canning stock Route, a track leads off the road to Kinyu close to well 34 the middle size circle in the centre of the painting. This was where the drovers dug a well, right next to the larger circle that represents the soakwater that the local people used in the olden times. The smaller circle is the sacred rockhole for the spirit dogs who roam the country. The dotting is kantilli or bish raisins a favourite bush tucker. Eubena spends time each year back at this site of her birth country in the Great Sandy Desert'.
