The painting depicts designs connected to Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) at Kalipinypa, a sacred site northwest of the Aboriginal Community of Kintore in the Central Western Desert of Australia. The tjukurrpa tells of an important rain making ceremony to invoke the elements. It is a powerful storm bringing on the lightning, thunderclouds and rain sending its deluge to rejuvenate the earth, fillingrock holes, clay pans and creeks. It has the power to create new life and growth upon the land. There is a lightning strike at this place.
