Evelyn Nangala Robertson 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 painting tells the story of a Jangala seed ancestor who travelled south from a small hill to a place called Mt Liebeg. As he travelled he picked the watiya warnu seeds and placed them in food carriers, one of which he carried on his head. Watiya-­warnu is a seed bearing tree that grows around Yuendumu.

When people returned to their camp after collecting the seeds they would make large windbreaks for shelter and winnow the seed in the late afternoon.

The associated Watiya-warnu ceremony involves the preparation of a large ground painting. Immature watiya-warnu seed is ground into a paste and can be used to treat upset stomachs.
