This is the artist's traditional Country now in the Keep River National Park area, close to the NT/WA border. At the centre is Woorrilbem- Hungry Billabong.  Above the billabong is Jalin, a major dreaming site for the hill and plains kangaroos. Around the billabong are hills and ant pits and spinifex clusters. This billabong has water all year round and is a very popular place to go fishing with bush tucker all around. The artist expresses this with Jilinybeng, bush cucumber, painted around the edge of the painting.
