This is a place called Pirnini. It is in the desert, near Kurlku. This is where everyone came to paint the Ngurrara canvas. Kurlku is my community where I live with my family. It is good country with lots of bush food. After the wet the warla (large claypan) fills up with water and there are lots of birds and bush meat here.
