THe three circles depict three different soakwaters, which were a lifesource for Helicopter and his family. They are, from left to right; yintarramalu, kilinypa and wirtirrpa. The many parallel lines represent the tali, the sandhills, that dominate the landscape. Helicopter says this is “Living water. Living country.”
