This painting depicts the claypans of the water soakage area of Kirrimalunya on the Country of the artist’s father which is to the north of Kiwurrkura in Western Australia. There was water in this area and it was used by the Tingari Men as they travelled through the area, headed to Kaakuratintja (Lake McDonald) where Tingari rituals were held. The lines in the painting are representative of the sand dunes and the colour blocked area, water soakages.
