This painting portrays a specific part of Mina Mina Dreaming, a story about a group of powerful ancestral women. 'Ngalyipi' is a rope-like creeper that climbs up the trunks and limbs of trees. The women during their travels collected this vine. It is used as a ceremonial wrap and a strap to carry coolamons and water carriers. Ngalyipi is also used to tie around the forehead to cure headaches and bind cuts.
