This painting is depicting part of the Emu Creation Story at the site of Kalaya Piti. It is here where there are two caves, one associated with the female emu and the other for the male emu. Both of these emus arrived at Kalaya Piti from a special place called Tipil. Inside the caves there are markings of emu footprints. In the early days Aboriginal people would stop and make camp here.
