Punu (the wood), the carvings of Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) have their beginnings in the Tjukurpa when the Creation Ancestors fashioned the first weapons and tools, setting down the laws and conventions of their design.

Kurkati, tinka, milpali or sand goannas, live in the sandhills and plains country and  have always been an important source of kuka (meat) for Anangu of this area.
