This painting in Albert’s mother’s country is about a particular Dreaming story, which Albert explained (at the time of its creation) to Charles Mountford:
These monoliths are the metamorphosed bodies of a Euro Man and his two sons; that on the left, the father, and on the right, his sons. In the creation, or “Dreaming Stories,” these mythical Euro people made their camp at this place, so that they could catch kangaroos for their evening meal. All the incidents of that hunt are commemorated in the various natural features of the locality; at one place a large isolated rock represents a heap of edible meat, at another are low rounded hills that grew out of the skin and bones that were thrown away, and still another a shallow depression in the plain, where the kangaroo was cooked. 
Emotional as well as physical distance is important in this mellow sunset scene in which the sky echoes the story. This conveys a sense that the viewer is in some way present at the very edge of the Dreaming gazing beyond the events described in the totemic story into an infinity that Albert no doubt perceived and to which he hinted.
The two monoliths, which are the focus of the story, are revealed in a complex composition of seven horizontal areas.
1. Bottom row of red orange rounded rocks all across.
2. Tussocks with lemon behind fine grass. Tussocks frame a line of blob trees with (4 silhouette trunks) of wet in wet painting method.
3. Plain (Palm Paddock) with subtle muted horizontal striped infill is blandly indicated as if it is unimportant in this version of the story. The plain is the least detailed horizontal.
4. Thin row of wet in wet blobs immediately in front of monoliths provide a subtle division from the paddock.
5. Rounded distant hills behind the monoliths are based on ultramarine with subtle muted orange over, infilled with small dots.
6. Lower sky with pale lemon wash and pale orange horizontal clouds in lower half of sky and paling off in top half to a hint of ultramarine. The orange clouds echo the shapes of the monoliths. The upper sky is a pale flat band in the sky horizontal. Dark lines from ultramarine and orange emphasise the monoliths and likewise on red rock bottom screen.
