Bambatu’s artworks depict ‘Woman’s Tingari Dreamings’. The site depicted in her paintings as the concentric circle is called WALA-WALA which is a sacred rock-hole. In the dreamtime the Tingari women travelled across the country depicted by the straight lines (travelling lines) they came from west of Kirrurkurra. This country is covered in sandhills(Tali) depicted as the vertical and horizontal intersecting lines, small circles indicate plenty of bush Tomato in that area, and cream dotted background colour is the earth and many witchetty grub are found there. The Tingari women performed many important dances and ceremonies at Wala-wala, women still go there and do the same today.
