  • Long time ago our people believed that the Wandjina was like a God to them. The colour of the board are like the caves. Around the Wandjina are small spirits, some are good and some are bad. If you go into a cave there are all sorts of spirit paintings, some are like small men and some are like sticks. Every time you see a painting of a Wandjina without a mouth, it's because he was talking to the people, but no one listened to him so he turned around and closed his mouth.
