This painting relates to the lake site of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay in Western Australia). In mythological times two Tingari men of the Tjungurrayi and Tjapaltjarri kinship subsections travelled from Wala Wala, near Kiwirrkura, to Marawa on the western side of the lake. From here, they continued to Mamuiltjulkulnga on the northern side of Wilkinkarra. The men gathered at the site to perform the dances and sing the songs associated with the area.
