The irregular shape towards the centre of this painting depicts the fresh water site of Warrumpa, on the south-western side of Lake Mackay. The small round shapes also depict other fresh water supplies in the area. The artist has depicted the dangerous snakes which live under the lake in the vicinity of the site. In mythological times a large number of women gathered here to perform ceremonies.
