Iondra This painting represents Jack's land claim to the government. "Donlardi Kingfisher is my important Dreaming. He took the food from my mum's tree called Dalbar and fed the starving people sweet fruit. We have plenty of Wandjina paintings in this place. Just follow the stepping stones, Djalala, and you can see them. My grandad's bones are in a cave here. Nick Green took a photo of me and we saw in the picture an Argula spirit behind me". Jack Dale. This painting features in Jack Dale's monograph "Mengenen" on page 116.
