This painting depicts the country around Jameson (Mantamaru). It shows a couple of mountain ranges which are prominent landmarks outside Jameson. The story of the painting is about 2 boys who spotted a snake. They caught it, cooked and ate it. After eating the snake the boys could not walk any more and turned into rocks which are also prominent Jameson landmarks. These rocks are called Tjitji Kutjara.
