Ethel said she has painted like the designs Ngaanyatjarra people carve into wood. The painting maps the country called Parumpi, between Mantamaru (Jameson) and Walu rock hole which is north of Blackstone. What was once a traditional walking track is now a track for cars.  The thick lines are the sand hills and the circles are the rock holes or a soak – each one representing a significant source of water.
