Eubena has painted her country south west of Balgo, along the middle stretches of the Canning Stock Route. The painting shows the tali (sand hills) and the central circles are tjurrnu (soak water) named Midjul. This is the country where Kinyu the spirit dog lives. Eubena would cover Midjul with leaves so Kinyu wouldn''t come out and she would also leave gifts of goanna.
