  • This painting depicts the Wandjina Gullaroo and his wife. The Gullaroo, meaning snake, was the animal he chose for mother earth. The Gullaroo created the river and the stream and dreaming place that is sacred to our people. These places are deep water holes which hold everlasting water that never runs dry. We believe the Gullaroo and his wife still live in these dark deep water holes and give Ungud babies.
