Sadie has depcited some of her TjaTja (grandmother’s) country called Ngantalara. A long time ago her people used to walk this country looking for the rockholes for water, but they couldn’t find them. They started burning the dry grasses across the soak plain so they could navigate that country in the future.  In this painting the red around the rock hole shows the rock hole when it is dry and the water goes grey and dirty. The bright green is when the grass grows up showing there is water there.
