Artwork Story

The central billabong is Barrwii, above it is another billabong Ballunulla. Below is another billabong also called Barrwii though this one dries up. The water doesn’t last all year. On the left of the central billabong is a rock. On the right is Wulajabi. This is the snake that travelled through this country in the Dreamtime. In the upper right is a large hill near the Bullo River.
