An excellent example of Napurrawuy's work. The bore of this instrument has not been touched, a feature of Napurrawuy's work that many people have grown to appreciate. This instrument plays very well with a warmth and smoothness that I really like. It has excellent balance between the drone and horn tone. The playing pressure is excellent responding well to both high pressure playing and softer and more subtle techniques. When played with higher pressure it produces a coarse texture while at the same time feeling smooth to play. It has been painted in earth pigments with Dhalwangu clan miny'tji depicting freshwater flowing towards saltwater within areas of Dhalwangu clan land. The artwork also features burrut'tji, the yirritja lightning snake.
