In this paining Willy has depicted the story of 'Kungka Juta' or Women’s Story. The iconography portrays the story of the Pintupi women as they sit by the rockholes collecting water (kaapi). There are several groups of women shown in this story. The u-shaped symbols are the ‘kungka’s’ or women, the concentric circles in the middle of each cluster is the rockhole (juta).

The construction of lines surrounding the outer of the painting represent the sandhills or ‘Tali’ as they are referred to by the Pintupi tribe.
