This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Warlayirti Artists, Balgo Hills which reads in part: ‘Christine has painted some of her mother’s country. This country is named Winpurpurla after the tjurnnu (soakwater) depicted as the central circle in the painting. Winpurpurla is an inta or living water place so it always has good water. The definite lines in the painting represent the tali (sandhills) that dominate this country.’
