Bugai Whyoulter's - Parnngurr

Parnngurr was a very important site for the artist's family in the pujiman (bush) days as there is a permanent yinta (waterhole) there. The artist used to camp in this country with her family when she was young. They would meet up with a lot of their other family members here. They would all come together before travelling on to other places. This is where the artist and her family were picked up and a big mob taken to the mission in Jigalong. This area is now the site of the Parnngurr Aboriginal Community. Bugai usually lives and paints in Kunawarritji (Well 33 on the Canning Stock Route). However this work depicting Parnngurr area was created in country during a series of special workshops for Martu artists.
