Michael Japaljarri Wayne paints for the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation located at the Yuendumu community 300km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. Established in 1985, Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a fully Aboriginal owned and governed art centre with over 600 members. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of all art works go directly back to the artists and their community projects.

The art centre is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings with many of its members work collectable having been featured in hundreds of exhibitions both in Australia and around the world .The art centre is both a stronghold of traditional Warlpiri culture and an essential part of Yuendumu's community life.

This story is located  at Mawurrungu to the south-west of Yuendumu. Mala (rufous hare-wallaby) live in hollows dug under spinifex clumps. 'Mala' are difficult to hunt as they run very fast throughout their habitat in the spinifex country.

In Warlpiri traditional paintings iconography is used to represent the dreaming, particular sites and other elements.In many painted versions of this story, men can be seen hunting for 'mala' among the spinifex with 'karli' (boomerangs) and 'warlpa' (spears).
