Two Jangala rainmakers unleashed a giant storm which created a lake at Pirlinyarnu (Mt Farewell) west of Yuendumu. A mulju (soakage) still exists in this place today and, whenever it rains, hundreds of ngapngarlpa (ducks) flock there. Sabrina's linear patterns represent the floodwaters flowing over the land at Pirlinyarnu.
