The site for this Dreaming is Jurlpungu, west of Yuendumu. Here the artist depicts the Ngalyipi, a rope-like creeper found growing in the region, which winds itself around the branches of eucalyptus. The vine has many uses, as a ceremonial wrap, a torniquet, a strap for parrajas and is also used as a wrapped around the head to cure headaches. The line represents Ngalyipi and women collecting it.
