The painting depicts designs associated with Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) at Kalipinypa, a site northwest of Kintore. The tjukurrpa tells of an important rain making ceremony to invoke the elements. It is a powerful storm bringing on the lightning, thunderclouds and rain sending its deluge to rejuvenate the earth, filling rock holes, clay pans and creeks. It has the power to create new life and growth upon the land.
In this painting Glenda has used the larger shapes to depict tali (sand hills) at the site of Kalipinypa. She has also used dots to represent Akatjurra (bush tomato) that have come to life after the rain.
