Nikita paints women collecting merne Yerrampe, known as honey ants. Merne means food in Nikita's language and Yerrampe is the honey ant. Yerrampe are a sweet bush food for the aboriginal people. When hunting for Yerrampe care is taken not to kill or hurt them (or not get bitten either!) so that they can go on and collect more honey. The sac on the back of the Yerrampe holds pure natural honey.
Nikita illustrates the Yerrampe and women are represented by the 'U' motifs collecting them. They carry with them their digging sticks which are typical instruments used for collecting many bush foods. Concentric circles represent the sites where the Yerrampe are being collected. Footprints that the women leave in the sand can sometimes be seen in Nikita's paintings. The background colours in the artwork reflect the rich sand hill country of Central Australia.
