This painting depicts designs associated with women's ceremonies at the rockhole and soakage water site of Ngaminya, just to the south-west of the Kiwirrkurra Community in Western Australia.
Yakari is the widow of Simon Tjakamarra, who painted for Papunya Tula Artists from the late 1970's until his death in 1990. Yakari lives and paints in the Kiwirrkura Community, although she often travels to Kintore as well as communities further west. Yakari completed her first paintings for Papunya Tula Artists in 1996 after starting as a group with other Kiwirrkura women.
