This painting is about a Dreamtime story. The story is from Esther's Mother's country - "Mangari". The painting is about a huge tunnel that runs through the ground in the Mangari country. The Ngaanyatjarra people call the site 'Kuru Yurltu' - meaning 'Hollow Eye'. The cavern-like tunnel holds a large body of water, and is the physical representation of a dreamtime story in which a man is speared through the torso as punishment for a crime. This tunnel represents the hole in the man's body after beeing speared.
