This painting shows the Waru Tjukurrpa, the Fire Dreaming.

The place for this Dreaming is Watarru, near Kanpi and Piplitjara in South Australia, near Maralinga and Ochre Valley.​

It shows the two Jangala travelling from Yuendumu down south and carrying the fire from Yuendumu.

They threw the fire stick at Watarru in the ground and created a big hole and mountain.

The two Jangalas created everything at Watarru.​

Afterwards they went back to Yuendumu.

They left a lot of Ngangkeri spirits in this place, which all the children hold.​

It is a big Dreaming from Yuendumu, called Warlukurlangu.
