In this painting, white dot work represents the dry seeds of alpar, black dot work represents the ahakeye (bush plum) and yellow dot work represents ntang artety (mulga seeds) ready to be collected. There are sacred Dreaming stories for Alpar Seed, Ahakeye and the Mulga Seed which belong to Alvira's country, Ilkawerne, and ceremonies are carried out to ensure their productivity.
