The art centre documentation for this work states:
Eubena has painted some of her country south west of Balgo in the middle stretches of the Canning Stock Route. The majority of the painting shows the tali (sandhills) that dominate this country. The central circles are tjurrnu (soak water) named Midjul. This is the country where Kinyu the spirit dog lives. Eubena would often cover Midjul with leaves so Kinyu wouldn't come out and would also leave gifts of goanna.
