Concentric circles in each corner, as well as four lined up in the center. The background is composed of colorful wavy lines made of dots
This painting depicts elements of a 'corroboree,' an Australian Aboriginal dance ceremony that often includes images drawn on the ground and with body paint on the participating men. The designs represent dreams from a place called
Tjikari that concern a snake and witchery grub. The concentric circles are the men's body paint, and the stippled background effects are ground designs made from a type of native cotton called 'wamulu' which is mixed with leaves and ochre's. This dreaming is for men of the Jungerai and Japaltjari skingroups only and contains sacred-secret information.
