About Nyilla
Jane has painted her mother's country called Nyilla. It is situated to the south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. This country is located between Kunawarritji (Well 33 on the Canning Stock route) and Kiwirrkurra.
The central circles depict different Tjurnu (soak water holes). In the country around Nyilla the Tali (sand dunes) twist and turn as depicted by the curved linear patterning.
This is the country Jane’s family used to travel around, going from one spot to another, hunting during the day and sleeping around the different Tjurnu during the night.
