This work depicts a Wungud place in Biddy’s country. Everything is from Water Wungud. The Wandjina made these special places. When Aboriginal people went hunting they put the little ones in the water. They are safe; the Wandjina sees their reflection and will look after them.
All our children were born from Wandjina, and their names are from Wungud. People ask us what Wungud names are your children, and then they know where we come from. We dream those kids from one generation to another.
