Angelina paints the story of the ‘Atham-areny’. The site for this story is the hilly country near Willowra on Angelina’s traditional country, north east of Alice Springs on the way to Utopia. Atham-areny comes from the Anmatyerre words ‘atham’ meaning ‘no fire’ and ‘areny’ meaning ‘belonging to’. Angelia says:

"The Atham-areny are tiny spirits of the country. They are colourless and live in the places where the fire does not belong. It is important that the babies and children stay by the fire. If the Atham-areny touches you, you will feel sick. If this happens a witch doctor must come and dance the sickness out."

In the Atham-areny paintings, Angelina has illustrated the Aboriginal women and children covered in body paint prepared to sing and dance with the witch doctor to help remove any sickness related to the Atham-areny.
