In this particular painting, Louise has depicted the ceremonial aspect of the Bush Medicine Leaves, which she is most renowned for. The concentric circles are the sacred meeting places or ceremonial sites mapped out in the Stirling Station region of the Northern Territory.

The leaf-like patterns are the Bush Medicine Leaves themselves, while the surrounding dot work is representative of the seed of the plant. The line work is the body paint design which is painted up on women's bodies for ceremony, while the U-shapes with lines are the chest designs.
