This painting is an aerial map of Sandy's country, Amata.
Sandy Brumby said, "this is a story of my father's country on Victory Downs Station, near Amata community. Lots of women were on the site collecting kampurapa (bush tomatoes). A man came along and asked the women for the mai (food), but the women did not give him anything. So the man had no mai. After the man left the women fed the mai to the tjitji (children) until they were full."
The man came back again and the group travelled together to Pangkupiri which is near Tjukurla and close to the country where Sandy Brumby's mother was born.
