Explanations related to this Aboriginal painting :

Charlene's family is the traditonal owner of the country west of the Warmun community called Ngarrgoorroon. Ngarrgoorroon lies on the cattle lease Texas Downs Station. Both names are used to describe and label this strip of Gija country. Ngarrgoorroon is very beautiful country. It has cascading waterfalls in the wet time (Jan- April), and in the dry season (May- Sept), many of the deep waterholes hold spring water for much of this period. Charlene and her family often visit the waterholes during the dry time to go fishing for pakapany (fat catfish), tarntal (turtle), jampinparuny (black Brim) and jalijkel (freshwater crayfish). The waterholes are also good places to go hunting. Again during the dry time, Charlene's family will look for kanyarrany (goanna), Jiyirriny (kangaroo), karnanganyjel (emu) and kernanyjel (echidna - often referred to as porcupine). All this tucker is much sought after in the Warmun community.
