"This painting depicts designs associated with the site of Lupulnga, a rockhole situated south of the Kintore Community. The Peewee (smalll bird) Dreaming is associated with this site, as well as the Kungka Kutjarra or Two Travelling Women Dreaming.

During ancestral times a group of women visited this site holding ceremonies associated with the area, before continuing their travels north to Kaakuratintja (Lake MacDonald), and later the Kintore area.

The lines in the painting represent spun hair-string which is used in the making of nyimparra (hair-belts), which are worn by both men and women during ceremonies.” (from Papunya Tula Artists Certificate of Authenticity)
