The painting depicts eight ladies taking about dreaming stories. Ngaanyatjarra people believe the earth was created by numerous mythical beings. The earth was initially flat and featureless and from this flatness rose ancestral spirits who during their journal across the country, brought into existence all the features of the landscape as well as all the animals that leave in it. The stories that tell of these ancestral spirits and their journeys and adventures are passed on from one generation to the next.
