It is a very large and complex work depicting many of the forest animals and sea creatures encountered by these coastal Aboriginal people in their daily lives. Note the rainbow serpent, the creature running horizontally through the work and the pair of spirit men or ancestral beings. The long necked tortoise and saltpetre crocodile, colourful reef fish, star fish and manta rays are all included as is the hatch of baby turtles. The tribe is at the heart of it all at their meeting place or campsite with it's central campfire.
