Bill Harney Marabeena Lady 2007
Natural ochre & pigment on canvas
340 x 450mm

The Marribena lady lives in the cave and comes out in the night and travels around. She goes up in the sky and come down and find someone and take interest in him and sit on top of his head and tell him a story. He takes him up in the sky in his dream on a string. String called marmorra - as he goes up in the sky. She's got him up on top and she's making a doctor out of him.
