This story takes place to an area east of Yuendumu, called Cockatoo Creek. It focuses on the Bush Potato, which is a fibrous tuber that grows beneath a low spreading plant. It is found by looking for cracks in the ground. This edible tuber grows from roots, which seek out moisture to sprout new plants. The Bush Potato is is good to eat when they are cooked, as they are soft and tasty.

The ancestral story behind this painting tells of the Bush Potato and Bush Carrot Ancestral Spirits fighting a battle in this area of Cockatoo Creek. The specific site associated with this painting is a water soakage site called 'Ngarparapunyu'.

The curved lines of the ceremonial designs represent the vine-like tendrils from which grow flowers.
