POA
This painting depicts some of the country of Patrick's father and grandfather. This country is located far to the south of Balgo in The Great Sandy Desert and is known as Waral Waral. The top of the white central area represents two small tjumu, or soacwaters. These were created in the Dreamtime by two snakes. These snakes were travelling south through the country, leaving their tracks which formed the hills of the area. That's how the artist tells the story and the painting shows the hills, water sources and the talis, which dominate the landscape of this country.
