This painting depicts designs associated with the travels of a group of women to Tjaningka and Wala Walura, two large rockholes, on the east side of Lake MacDonald.
While at Wala Walura the women sang the songs and performed the dances associated with the site. After the ceremonies, the women disappeared inside the rockhole.
