The overlaying of black icons over the colourful background in this painting tell of a story her father taught Jeannie when she was a small girl living close to Mina Mina, in the Tanami Desert, towards the border of Northern Territory and Western Australia. It is about foxes and how the father fox teaches his young foxes how to hunt and dig holes and hide. 

This painting is part of a body of work that Jeannie painted whilst staying with her auntie, Mitjili Napanangka Gibson, in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. 

The background depicts wildflowers which are used as a bush medicine when crushed up with water to use as rubbing ointment for burns, scabies etc.
