This painting is Pirlinyarnu (Mt. Farewell) about 165km west of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. The 'kirda' (owners) for the water dreaming site at Pirlinyarnu are Nangala/Nampijinpa woman and Jangala/Jampijinpa men.
This Dreaming story is of two Jangala men who are rainmakers sang the rain unleashing a giant storm that collided with another storm from Wapurtali at Mirawarri. A 'kirrkarlanji' (brown falon) carried the storm further west from Mirawarri where the two storms travelled across the country from karlipirnpa. A ceremonial site for the water dreaming near Kintore
