In her paintings Marion is depicting Tjukula Itilkira Itilkira - rock holes that are located in close proximity and interlinked. These rock holes were an important source of water during the dry season when most of the waterholes and creeks dried up. Water is an essential element in the desert. Knowledge of rock hole sites is passed on from generation to generation and revered by all Pitjantjatjara Aṉangu (people).
