Explication sur cette œuvre d’art Aborigène :

This story was told to me by my Dad, Rammey Ramsey. This is my father’s Country called Warlawoon. This place is along Eba Green Yard, and the black fella name for these cliffs and river is called Munthun.

These women live in this place. They are bush women called Wurra Wurlul – that’s my Dad’s dreaming. Whenever we see these women in our dreams that is the sign that my Dad is coming. Their skin is fair and they have long dark hair. My father has a long hair on the le􀅌 side of his shoulder – that’s the woman’s hair.

He told me a story about these women. They were all bathing in the sun. They are like mermaids too. There were plenty of them and they didn’t see this man watching them from on top of the cliff. He then went down closer to them. One woman saw him coming towards them. He tried to grab one of them, but they all dived back in the water. But this black fella, he went in after them until he came out with one woman.

She bit him all around his arms, but he held on to her really tight and took her to his home. He told her to go and get some water, clean water. She understood him, and she went and she came back. The man said this water is too dirty. He sent her away again and she came back with dirty water again. This was the third time, he told her to go and get clean water. The man waited and waited, there was no sign of her anymore. All the other women had taken her back to the river and that was the end.
