Artist statementThe story of Murtulya. He bin walking in the bush looking for water. He find all punyanangu. Punyanangu is like a well. You can find it anywhere, digging. Soft sand fall on top of him, and kill him. People can still use that water today. Make a hole anywhere and find water. (O'Ferrall, Jimmy Pike - Desert Designs, 1995)
