This painting tells the story of a small worm or caterpillar found in Jilly's country. Pronounced eey-LEN-ky-la in Jilly’s language, this creature is represented in this painting by the concentric circle designs. She, Iylenkyla, is asleep in the centre and then unwinds herself around and around. Iylenkyla is special to Jilly as the story belongs to the women of her country, Arawerr.
Dots are white and napthol crimson.
