Description

This painting represents the land east of Tjukurla called 'Kurlkurta'. It is a Tjukurpa story about a woman who was digging in the rockholes there. While digging she fell into the rockhole, went through the ground and came out through another rockhole. When she came out the other side she saw two big water snakes, 'Wanabi', big snakes from the Dreamtime. The woman squeezed her breastmilk into the rockhole to appease the giant snake and so she escaped.
