Story from the certificate of authenticity:
This dreaming tells about the special seeds we use for grinding and making powder. The women add water to make a special damper. They put the damper in the coals for cooking. There are many different seeds we collect.
Kirda or owner of this Jukurrpa (Dreaming)  is the skin groups Napurrurla, Nakamarra, Jupurrurla and Jakamarra. Kurdungurlu or checking group of people are Nungarrayi, Napa;jarri, Jungarrayi and Japaljarri.
This painting depicts Karnta (women) at the seed dreaming ceremony and their Kajipa (dancing sticks) and ngurlu (seeds).It shows different characters such as the small snakes that live under some of the seed bushes. And the ants with their tracks that are part of this story.
