This painting is of a water source and creation site named Tuwan. At Tuwan the ancestral beings were magpie men who eventually made their way to Eucla on the coast where they perished. The other rockholes are Kanmati and Pirili which is an important creation site for the 'seven Sisters'.

Ian Rictor emerged from a fully traditional life in Spinifex Country in 1986. He was born at a place called Artulin, to the north of Tjuntjuntjara and grew up in the surrounding areas of Tuwan, Tilutjipi, Kamanti, Wiritjara, Mantaratjara, Parntaltjipi, Tjili and Palka Palka which he shows in this painting. Ian is a fully initiated man, who is knowlegable in many areas within Spinifex. He always paints his country and associated stories.
