This painting represents a tribal gathering. The four circles on the outside represent tribes and the circles in the middle represent the gathering. The lines between the circles are tribes walking to the middle circle for the gathering or corroboree. The gecko is dancing at the corroboree. The ochre, red and black dots represent the bush. The brown dots and circles are waterholes where we catch fish, crayfish and freshwater lobsters. The boomerangs are clapsticks used for the tribal dance corroboree. These are the tools used for dance. This is a part of our lore and tribal way we have lived for years. This is our journey and culture we should never lose. This is my story.
