Tjamu Tjamu represents the artist’s birthplace, a Kangaroo Dreaming site east of Kiwirrkurra. A male kangaroo ancestor had travelled there from the north and called a group of ancestral women to camp with him at a rock hole. He wanted these women, who were his sisters, aunties, mothers and grandmothers, to become his wives. The women wanted to call him tjamu tjamu (grandfather, grandson) but he wanted to be called kurril kurril (keep as a spouse someone who is ineligible). The Kangaroo ancestor continued his travels to Tjutalpi, Witunkuntja, Warti, Makarra, Millmillpa and Kurryl.
