Imelda is the first child born to Lucy Yukenbarri and Helicopter Tjungurrayi. In this painting Imelda has depicted her mother's country south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is named Winpurpurla after a tjurrnu (soakwater). Winpurpurla is an inta (living water) place so it always has good water. Women travel to Winpurpurla to collect a variety of seeds including lukarrari which is ground to make damper as well as kumpupatja (bush tomato) and karnti (bush potato).
