This story is for the Naparrula, Jupurrula, Nakamarra and Jakamarra skin groups. The painting tells the Dreamtime story about the women looking for grass seeds. They would follow ant tracks in order to find gathered grass seeds. The seeds were collected in coolamons and taken home to be sorted ready for grinding. The ground seeds are then ready to be made in to damper. The round circles represent the gathered seeds./ The oval shapes are the dampers. Women are shown as U shapes with their coolamons. The hole in the centre of the painting is the ants nest. This Dreaming takes place near the Granites in the Tanami desert at a place called Miya Miya.
