Sculptured tree roots rise from the base turning into branches, with pierced clay, flanking either side of the centre figure, traveling to the top of the sculpture and turning into hands of spirits to present a cluster of faces of Pitjantjatjara children with a main centre figure of a young aboriginal child at the very top of the work.
