This painting shows a section of the Kungkarangkalpa (Seven Sisters) story where the old man Yula is trying to find tracks and traces of the sisters for whom he is searching. The women, who had been gathering the bush food Tjarnmarta (wild onion), saw the old man and immediately hid themselves, crawling over the landscape and now to be seen as rocks in it. Yula is also seen as a prominent Kurrajong tree on a sand hill at Tjamalya. After this, the sisters ascended and flew through the air to Milykutjarra, where they can be seen as many gum trees along the water course there. The snakes are the water serpents at Lirunya Rockhole which is near Tjamalya.
