A bark painting depicting the Journey of Guwak (night bird) ancestor with a possum, emu, echidna, cicada, spider, rat and a dog-like creature. These creatures are black and yellow in colour, and appear to be walking along the elongated tail of the black and brown coloured Guwak. There are repetitions of long black rectangular symbols across the surface of the painting, possibly symbolising lagoons, joined with a pattern of wavy yellow lines. The background is crosshatched in a rarrk pattern of red, white and yellow pigment.
