This is the story about an ancestral being called Kuniya, a female woma python snake who travelled through the desert. At Illurrpa she stayed long enough to mate and lay seven eggs.
A matted black fibre found at Ilurrpa rock hole is said to come from the hair of her many victims which Kuniya had eaten and then regurgitated when she fell ill. The dark streaky features in the landscape are said to be the black hair flowing down the hillside to Ilurrpa.
