|Artist statement|| |
Six brothers were living at this place. Two women came here and the six Pajarriwarnti brothers were turned into a snake. A big strong wind,a willi-willi, sprung up and dragged them down into the waterhole. The ground grew damp, and clouds came up from the ground. Ngalyamarra is the rock ledge around the waterhole. The water comes from deep under the ground. The people gather round the waterhole to tell the snake to bring water. Above the waterhole is a big sandhill where only men can go.
