The giant cod fish

This painting is about how all the cod fish became throughout  all the rivers. Many years ago Wangarra (our great hunter) speared her in the belly and all codfish (thousands) came rushing out of her belly. The codfish spread throughout the rivers in our community. The giant cod fish was never seen again.

The big fish is the giant codfish

The dots around the giant codfish is her movement.

The tiny codfish are all the codfish coming out of her belly and the white wiggly lines and small black dots is the fish gushing out of her belly.

The tiny green dots with the big green and yellow dots is the rivers and the spread of the codfish throughout our river systems.

The red circles with red wiggly lines attached and the tiny dots inside them is bora rings(tribal areas)

The dots around the yellow circles is the different types of land (Hills, mountains, forests, deserts etc. )
