This painting depicts the Pintupi Dreamtime ancestors. It is a traditional custom for the Pintupi Aboriginal men to light bush fi res, during their ceremonial business. The gaps through the painting depict a large baron sand-hill.

The custodians of this dreaming are the Tjangala and Tjampitjinpa‘s, the Tjapaltjarri are the guardian of this particular dreaming and they are responsible for body painting and overall making sure this ceremony is carried out correctly. Ronnie is considered to be a leading Australian indigenous artist.
