This painting shows Warnampi Tjalpu Tjalpu (Water Snakes named Tjalpu Tjalpu) at Karilwara, a time of mens ceremonies. The concentric circles joined to the central ceremonial grounds where the dreaming presence of the water snakes is shown indicate women who have left the camp to gather and cook food.
