This painting depicts Water Dreaming at Kalipinypa, a sacred site to the north-east of the remote community of Kintore. The painting tells the story of the rain and hail making ceremony for the site of Kalipinypa. Ancestral forces are invoked to bring on a powerful storm with lightening, thunderclouds and rain, which sends a deluge of water to rejuvenate the earth, filling the waterholes, and generating new growth.
