Miriam has depicted a story told by her Uncle Wimmitji which took place in Tjatjati, north of Jupitor Well. In the centre there are two eggs which were sung by marparn men (healers) in a big Tingarri (dreaming) ceremony. This ceremony called upon the native cat spirit near a sacred rockhole also depicted in the centre. This ceremony resulted with two babies which were born from the eggs. The oval shapes surrounding the eggs represent the Marparn men.
