|Artist statement|| |
There is a snake right there at Japingka waterhole. Sometime when he get there, he's laying in a tree. Kalpurtu is more powerful on. He's got a strong wind, hail and dust storm. Jutul is a dust storm, a strong one. Karliwji is a big wind, more strong, can blow down big trees and all like a cyclone. Ngartiwara is smoke coming from the ground, a white one, comes up before rain. Pulijita is a hail storm, it can pull out the grass, make the tree with no leaf or bark. It can kill animals. The people can go underground, like in a cave. There it can't touch them.
