Physical description
Simple design in maroon, red ochre, yellow and white lines and patches of colour, free of dots, represents "kuruwarri" associated with the marsupial mouse ancestor. The concentric circles represent campsites and the parallel lines indicate the marsupial mouse Dreaming path. Alongside the circle-path symbols are marsupial mouse tail and paw marks, the signs left when such small animals move through the desert.
