This painting decpicts designs assoicated with the travels of Tingari Men to the site of Karrilwarra, an area west of Kiwirrkura in Western Australia.
There is a series of small rockholes at this site on the side of a large hill, and after rain these rockholes are connected by a small creek.
Since events assoicated with the Tingari cycle are of a secret nature no further detail was given. Generally, the Tingari are a group of mythical characters of the Dreaming who travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites. The Tingari Men were usually followed by Tingari Women and accompanied by novices and their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles. These mythologies form part of the teaching of the post initiatroy youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.
