As the name implies, the Central Desert Work depicts a gathering and celebration of Women. There are two groups of female elders, probably with feasting in progress. We can identify them as women by the digging stick coolamon. In this case the coolamons are full of food, from which we can safely assume some form of celebration is in progress. The other females scattered through the main body of the work do not yet have coolamons to collect and carry food and not all have digging sticks close to them or only have curved sticks. Perhaps at the end of the ceremony, these young girls will be regarded as women. This painting is part of Aboriginal Law and further discussion of query is not appropriate.
