This painting gives the viewer a bird's eye view of the artist's land. A bushfire has been burning through this area and is depicted by the important concentric circle in the centre of the painting and in the radiating darker brown shapes. Fire is important to the desert people and an essential element of land management. Men are depicted here with their fighting sticks by the 'C' and 'I' designs. The artist has used dot style which is typical of the area and reminiscent of her father Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri's style.
