This painting tells the dreaming story of the Wanampi (Water Snake) that was near Lake Baker catching mice and eating them, surrounded by great clouds, rain and lightning. The Wati Kutjarra (Two Mythic Men) saw the snake, killed it with their boomerangs, cooked it and ate it. However, the flesh and fat from the Wanampi made the Wati Kutjarra feel very sick and they vomited for three days which created the lake. The fat of the Wanampi that the Two Men vomited up is seen as white rocks in the landscape by the Lake (white ovals in the painting)
