My aboriginal artwork represents a kangaroo with nowhere to live and with no friends and no water. One day this kangaroo saw some aboriginal foot prints he followed the foot prints and found a billabong he lived there and had plenty to drink.
I think one of the birds had a blister and he tripped on a stick and his blister popped and out came water.
Once there were these animals they didn’t have any water all they had was gulbirra (kangaroo grass). One day they saw Bangarra the blue tongue lizard drying him self so the animals thought he must have water so they prepared a meeting and got Gudjilla the bandicoot to spy on him, but out of the corner of Bangarras eye he saw Gujilla. So the animals had another meeting and got someone else to spy on Bangarra. They got willy wag tail but his black and white tail stood out to easily. Then they tried Gula the rat. Gula scared Bangarra and they had water rivers and creeks because the king fisher wriggled and made them.
