This painting depicts designs associated with the rockhole site of Wirrulnga, east of Kiwirrkura Community. A number of women, represented by the 'U' shapes, camped here before continuing their travels north-east. Wirrulnga is associated with birth abd while at the site, one of the women gave birth. The arcs represent the rocky outcrops and the surrounding sandhills.  While in the area, they gathered the edible berries known as kampurarrpa, or desert raisin, from the small shrub Solanum centrale.
