Lumai's work is in major collections throughout Australia and her work was selected for the prestigious Bankwest Award in 2015. This painting relates to a key dreaming (story) for the Miriwoong and Gadjerriwoong peoples about the ownership of Country around Kununurra and to the east, in Yab-yabbe-geni-nim. The circles represent pieces of wild honey, collected by two kangaroos representing both peoples. As they fought for their right to take the honey, it scattered across the land.
