The concentric circles in this painting represent sacred sites west of Papunya in which the ancestors of the desert Aboriginal people performed ceremonies and various other deeds. These ancestors travelled the area in the Dreamtime world-creation period and their ceremonies created and modified many aspects of the landscape, to become what it is today.
