Lena does not paint a Dreamtime story in this artwork. The circles represent soakages (small water holes) which were water sources for her family and herself when she was a little girl. She has told us in more recent years that they are all dried up now. Lena painted this piece of art in 2017.
This Dreamtime painting comprises stories of the Ahakeye (Bush Plum), the Utnea (Carpet Snake) and, in Lindsay's words, 'Might be that caterpillar grub' which is found in the Bush Plum tree.
