Ningie Nangle is a senior artist of Warlayiriti Community. The painting depicts Nangle's country and the terrain of the Great Sandy Desert, south of Yaka Yaka in West Australia. This area is Mungai, and is known to have rocky outcroppings which drop to sand hills. Ningie Nangle makes bold use of orange, yellow and white colors for the circular areas as soak waters and multiple undulating lines to illustrate the sand hills that dominate Mungai.
