The painting depicts the travels of two ancestors that took the form of dogs seen here. The dots are fine rain falling and the rarrk or crosshatching is freshwater running across the ground. The wavy line at one end is the flat salt plain where freshwater and saltwater meet "on the side nearest the forest".
