The country associated with this painting is Kiwirkurra, located in the 'tali' sandhill country of the Gibson Desert, south west of Lake McKay. The traditional iconography used to represent this dreaming are; concentric circles depicting the rock holes found in this area, the half circles the sandhills and the horizontal wavy lines the lightening. When the lightning comes the water birds, 'Tjikaluk' come out and wade along the edge of the water.
