Artwork Story

In the print the artist shows the country near the Bow River called Ngayiwoorrji a dreamtime woman and her husband were sitting up on the cliffs there, calling out to their dogs (joolang) to come back. The dogs ran down and caught a plains kangaroo (jarlangarany). They bit him and the kangaroo fat dripped out and formed white rocks scattered through the country. This area is represented in the print at the bottom in the right hand corner.
