This painting depicts designs relating to the site of Tjintjintjin, west of Kintore community. There is a series of rockholes at this site which are represented in the painting by the roundels. There is also an underground cave at this site. In ancestral times an old lady travelled to Tjintjintjin from Malparinga, north-west of the Kintore community. She also visited the soakage water sites of Ngatanga and Yaranga, which are all west of Mantati Outstation, approximately seventy kilometres west of the Kintore Community. She then travelled further east to Muruntji, south-west of Mt Liebig. At Muruntji she was accosted by one of a group of boys so she chased them and caught all but the culprit, who managed to escape. She killed the others and cooked them in the fire. She the travelled to Kaltarra where she entered the earth.
