It concerns the punishment by fire of two brothers who broke an ancient law concerning the sharing of game.  From an aerial perspective, the painting may be read as blackened landscape with islands of smouldering spinifex grass, clearly marked out in the white footprints of the men's path as they flee from the flames. The presence of the Possum and Wallaby Ancestors who set fire to the spinifex grass is indicated by their tracks, also in white. An Aubusson tapestry France, size approximately 8ft. 3in. x 11ft.
