about this painting:  This painting depicts designs associated with a rockhole site south-west of the Kiwirrkura community in Western Australia.  The roundels represent sandhills. The lines represent sandhills in the area.  In ancestral times a group of women camped at this site, collecting desert raisins, which they ground into a paste and cooked it in to a type of damper.  The rocky outcrop at this site is said to have been formed from mounds of these berries.
