The Kayili Artists documentation for the work states:
"Kaliangku is a large freshwater claypan north-west of Patjarr. This painting depicts the coming of big rains from the north-west around Beagle Bay, south of Broome, filling up the claypans and the rivers of the Gibson Desert, 'like the sea'. Another claypan near Tjukurrla called Wananpa also fills. One rockhole called Nginga, a special site associated with rain and rainmaking is also shown."
