Story from the certificate of authenticity:
This story relates to a place called Mikantji, an important Water Dreaming site west of the remote Aboriginal community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. The custodians of this sacred place are the Nangala and Nampitjimpa women and their brothers, the Tjangala and Tjampitjimpa men. The painting tells how the women perform ceremonies or inma celebrating the creation of the Mikantji site by the storm ancestors.

If present, the U shapes are women, the circles are waterholes, the long sinuous lines are creeks, and the short curved lines are puuli or hills.
