This painting depicts Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming). The story tells of an emu and a bush turkey who would go about collecting bush raisins to create ‘Kapurdu’ (fruit balls) together. Through Margaret's painting, you can clearly see the large prints of the emu and smaller ones of the bush turkey. Today, at Ngarlikirlangu, you can still see round, red rocks which are the ‘Kapurdu.’ A number of Dreamtime stories are based in the Ngarlikirlangu area.
