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. The oval shapes above and below the Dreamtime Sisters in the centre of this painting represent this sacred site. Here women perform ceremony for Arlatyeye (a pencil yam) and its seed. It is night time when they have their ceremony and the darker coloured dots represent this.Warm, bright coloured sections represent the day time where women can be seen collecting the yam into a coolamon (carved wooden bowl).The circle designs throughout the painting are symbolic of waterholes scattered across the country or where the women dig for arlatyeye.
