The Dreamtime Sisters are good spirits dancing and looking after Colleen's country. Colleen says these sisters were once living people; her ancestors. There is a sacred site on Colleen's country where Dreamtime Sisters are carved on the rock walls, and on these walls, this is what they look like.
In this painting, there are two large decorated circles flanked by U shaped symbols. These circles represent the sacred site and U shapes are women performing the ceremony. Dreamtime Sisters are connected spiritually to the women as represented by thick white lines. The women are performing the ceremony for the Arlatyeye story (a sacred pencil yam and its seed). The smaller circle designs throughout the painting are symbolic of waterholes scattered over the country or where the women dig for the yam. The trailing yam leaves can be seen emerging from the ground at the bottom of the painting.
