The artist depicts Lake Gregory, located near Mulan community in the Great Sandy Desert. The lake is indicated by the central transverse line, which lies between two rectangular expanses of desert country. The circle to the left represents a nearby spring. The work shows Rover Thomas’s ability to conceptualise topographical features as abstract elements within an expansive pictorial space. The use of layers of natural ochres bound with bush gums to create a stained surface, matt and tonal rather than thick in texture, is characteristic of Thomas’s use of pigment.
