Miriam has depicted a story told by her Uncle Wimmitji which took place in Tjatjati, north of Jupiter Well. In the centre there are two eggs which were sung by Marparn men (healers) in a big Tingarri dreaming ceremony. They called on the native cat spirit near a sacred rock hole – also depicted in the centre. Two babies were born from the eggs from that ceremony. The oval shapes surrounding the eggs are Marparn men.
