  • The painting represents the salmon season and cold weather. Where you see the blue salmon start running when in season. Also the turtles are rich in fat so this is the best time to go hunting. The Wandjina (cloud and rain spirit) is the one who shows the Milky Way and tells us it’s cold weather. That’s when we know it’s time to go look for these animals to eat.
