The site depicted in this painting is Pirlinyarnu (Mt. Farewell), about 165km west of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm that collided with another storm from Wapurtali. The two storms travelled across the country, from Karlipinpa near Kintore. A Kirrkarlanji (brown falcon [Falco berigora]) carried the storm further west until it dropped the storm at Pirlinyarnu, forming an enormous Maliri (lake). A ?mulju? (soakage) exists in this place today. At Puyurru the bird dug up a ?warnayarra? (rainbow serpent). The serpent carried water with it to create another large lake. Whenever it rains today hundreds of ?ngapangarlpa? (bush ducks) still flock to Pirlinyarnu. The ?kirda? (custodians) for this Jukurrpa are Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women.
