Betty paints Meyarl (hands) that represent her ancestors. Back in the Dream time in rock caves our ancestors mixed water and ochre in their mouths, placed their hands on the surface of the rocks and blew the paint mixture on and around their hands, leaving a hand-print, which marked an area for where a tribe came from so that other tribes were aware that another tribe lives in that area.
