Bambatu depicts the ceremonial journey of her ancestors. Her “Kungka Tjukurrpa” paintings show the journey paths travelled from Wirrulunga, east of Kirwirrkurra, to Kintore, Mount Leibig and the Papunya regions. At each location, the women would stop, dance and sing the cycle of each sacred site. In Bambatu’s paintings, the concentric circles represent waterholes, and the parallel dotted lines represent the path travelled.
