Paintings depict the Tjukurpa, the Law and stories of Ancestors. Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) have responsibilities for the protection and teaching of different Tjukurpa and there are strict protocols for the imparting of knowledge. The dotting technique has evolved with the need to adapt sacred expressions of Tjukurpa for public viewing and as a depiction of the desert landscape.
In the painting the artist shows a camel which are in introduced species to Australia, but just happen to thrive in the Australian deserts. The camel looks to be travelling through country, heading to the near waterhole.
