The image painted depicts the Dreamtime story of the Bush Hen ancestor. The bush hen in search of food, roams Abie's country "Utopia" leaving behind its tracks. Utopia is Aboriginal land ca. 250 km north/east of Alice Springs in Central Australia.

The bush hen story is significant to Abie and her family and all Aboriginal people who share custodianship of this Dreaming and  is re- enacted often during ceremonies.
