This is the Luurnpa Tjukurrpa (Kingfisher Dreaming). Luurnpa put its beak into a hole in the ground and a group of people climbed out from the hole onto the Kingfisher's back. The central circle is a site close to Wirrimanu (Balgo) where Luurnpa transformed. Circles above this are uncleaned soaked waters that are not to be drunk. They are representative of two ancestral women of the Tjukurrpa who were travelling around this country. The undulating lines represent the escarpment of Wirrimanu which are flanked by creek lines. The shape at the top of the painting is a large sand hill. This is Miriam's father’s and uncle's country.
