This painting talks about the Murungkurr people. Murungkurr people look like little dwarves or elves; living in caves and/or trees, they are protectors of the land. When visiting the country, people must seek permission to enter or otherwise the Murungkurr can make you sick, however if lost they can turn into birds and help people find their path. The painting depicts these people travelling around looking after country. It was during their traveling that at times they would give songs to the people while they were asleep dreaming.
