  • This painting depicts a place near to Tjukurla, Nerida’s mother’s country She cannot say the name of this place, as it is the place of an important Tjukurpa, where the Porcupine pushed that big Perentie lizard out of the way.   The Porcupine was really angry, jealous, because the Perente had been loving that Porcupine’s wife. He went looking around for that Perentie, found him and pushed him out of the way, blocking his pathThe porcupine did not want him to pass though.   The porcupine and the perentre became the mountains in this country, they are still here now.
