This Dreaming relates to the land adjacent to the windmill at Warlarlarla (Rabbit Flat). This painting retells the story of two dog ancestors who travelled along a creek bed north-east to Yarikurlangu. When they arrived they made a burrow to rest in and start a big family. Their ribcages can be seen as features in the landscape of the area and have been depicted in the painting as well. Surrounding these symbols there are also several waterholes represented by the circles.
