The underlying markings in this painting show some of the significant sites of Atnwengerrp country, Barbara's mother's country, as well as land formations such as sand hills and White Quartz Hill, campsites, flora, fauna, Awelye (Women's Ceremony), spiritual figures and ancestral dancing tracks, as they can still be seen today, etched in the rocks at Anthep. This ancestral place remains the most significant site on Atnwengerrp country for Barbara's people. Ceremony and dance are still performed there. It is a place where everyone - men, women and children can meet together and camp. It is also a place where permanent water can be found.
