This painting depicts a sacred site called Irryuntju (Wingellina, Western Australia), where the Dingo Ancestors of the ‘Creation or Dreamtime’ world originated. This Dingo emerged from underground to perform ceremonies and secret sacred rituals that created the land formations, as we know them today. Irryuntju is a spiritual home of the Dingo Ancestors who are honoured by the desert indigenous people in ceremonies performed near Irryuntju. The central circle represents the site of Irryuntju. The background represents the bush flowers, spinifex and sand hill country typical of the area. The paw prints are the tracks of the Dingo Ancestors as they crossed the country.
