This painting shows Eva’s depiction of “Ngadajirri” or Budgerigar Dreaming and portrays the breeding site of the budgerigar in Eva’s homeland at Mount Dennison, north east of Alice Springs in Central Australia. Employing fields of intricate dotting Eva’s painting shows the landscape of her country with its contours and hills, the waterholes where the birds flock to drink and play at the waters edge, and the sites where they lay their eggs. The budgerigar travel long distances to gather at this breeding site. The story was passed onto her by her father (now deceased) and it is an important story for Eva and her family.
