Lola paints water dreaming (Ngapa Jurkurrpa) stories associated with Pikilyi (Vaughn Springs). This is a large and important waterhole near Mount Doreen Station. These stories have been passed down to Lola from her mother and aunties – much the same as they have been passed on for thousands of years.
The country associated with this ‘ngapa Jukurrpa’ (water Dreaming) is Mikanji, a watercourse west of Yuendumu that is usually dry. There are ‘mulju’ (soakages) in this creek bed. The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this Dreaming site are Nangala/Nampijinpa women and Jangala/Jampijinpa men. Mikanji is an important water Dreaming site, and features in at least three different water Dreaming tracks.
