Story: The painting depicts designs associated with the travels of the Kungka Kutjarra (Two Women) to a site in the south side of Lake McDonald. The two women were digging for the small animal Kuningka (Western Quoll). These animals usually live in burrows which were dug by other animals such as the Burrowing Bettong or Rabbits and ocacasionally in hollow logs. The lines in the work represent spun hair which is made into hair-string skirts which are worn by the women during the ceremonies associated with the site. The women later continued their travels to the east.
