The artist has painted a fish trap story. The fish trap is a freshwater trap. Traditionally people would make fish traps from pandanus fibre, laying them in the afternoon and checking them in the morning. Fish would be caught in the trap overnight. The Manjarbu (fish trap) Djang is the dreaming of a place called Karbarri a large place in the stone country.
