The centre of this painting represents a sacred Women’s Dreaming site associated with the green pea (antweth).

Depicted throughout the painting is the artist's country covered with seeds (ntang) of the pea, which are an important food for the “traditional healer” (ngangkar), and the Mountain Devil Lizard (Arnkerrth).

The elongated X-shape represents two of the artist’s Mountain Ancestors Dreaming paths. A dry river bed extends along these 'fault lines' ending at the sacred ceremonial site.
