Description/Remarks    Image depicts massed circles in dark red, dark orange, light orange and white with cream-coloured borders on a red-ochre ground. From Waringarri Aboriginal Arts - "Print Description: 'This is stone-country - when I walk across this country there are lots of rocks and little stones. In the wet season the rivers are filled with coloured stones.' " "This print is a corroboree story given to the artist by her father, which describes the boundaries of the stony Miriwoong country, as well as being a representation of her traditional country at Woorroo Woorrem, east of Kununurra in the Kimberley region."
