Explanations related to this Aboriginal painting :

Journey's between Woonggool and Nganyjoowarrji inform this major work for Tommy Carroll. Woonggoolis a distinctive hill that can be seen to the south of the Gibb River Road near Wyndham in Western Australia. Wangul bears the same name as Tommy's grandfather.

It is the origin of Nganyjoowarrji Ngarranggarni (Dreaming), the snake who created this country, travelling all the way down to Doon Doon. Nganyjoowarrji is Tommy's country. He is named after the last large waterhole, that Ngarranggarni snake hole. Nganyjoowarrji, Tommy Carroll and Woonggool his grandfather travel this country; the canvas symbolises and activates these journeys.
