This traditional painting depicts women’s initiation ceremony where senior women elders gather together to teach their culture & dreamtime stories to the young women.

They travel between one sacred site to another, depicted by the concentric circles, teaching the importance of each site, their dreamtime songs & dances in the area of the artist’s birthplace. They also teach their young women how to survive & collect bush tucker.
