Acrylic on Galacia linen
1285 x 1840mm

"Those men, Tjungurrayi & Tjapaltjarri look for the green parrots. We eat some of those birds - good meat ones. In the Dreamtime they were human beings and came from Chilla Well and travelled east to Yallowari - long way. They were law beings. And some of those men they climbed in the tree and got the branches to make fire for cooking. The Tjungurrayi and Tjapaltjarri they cook the birds. Really nice like a chicken. Eat with goanna and witchetties." Rachel Jurra Feb 2007.
