This country is named Winpurpurla after the tjurnnu (soakwater) depicted as the central circle in the Paintings. Winpurpurla is an inta, or 'living water' place so it always has good water. Women often travel to Winpurpurla to collect a variety of seeds including lukarrari which is ground to make damper and kumpupatja (bush tomato). The definate lines in the Paintings represent the tali (sandhills) that dominate this country.
