This painting depicts designs associated with women's ceremonies at the rockhole and water soakage site of Ngaminya, south of Kiwirrkura community in the Gibson desert.

A group of women, represented by the 'U' shapes, came from the west and made camp at this site.  They gathered edible berries known as kampurarrpa, or desert raisin, from the small shrub Solanum centrale which grows in this area.  They later continued their travels further east.
