Doris has painted Puli Mankurpa, three landmarks that stand in a line running east to west in Central Australia: Atila (Mt Connor); Uluru; and Kata Tjuta represented as the three large bush flowers. Kuniya(Woma python) is found in the middle of the far right flower, Kungkarangkalpa(seven sisters) and Wati Nyiru(one man) are found in the middle of the remaining two flowers.


Paintings depict the Tjukurpa, the Law and stories of . Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) have responsibilities for the protection and teaching of different Tjukurpa and there are strict protocols for the imparting of knowledge. The dotting technique has evolved with the need to adapt sacred expressions of Tjukurpa for public viewing and as a depiction of the desert landscape.
