Baniyala story 24M

As told by the artist:

‘In this story the blue running up the middle is darpa (wood). This wood is lying in the gapu (water) at Baniyala. This is Madarrpa Miny’tji (design). The raypiny gapu (fresh water) is the blue. The yellow design and the red represents the fire.
The water is dry and shallow, little bit muddy, just a little bit of gapu (water). There are bubbles in the water called Nyenygarr.
There are fish swimming near the darpa (wood) they are called Gunbirrdirr.

The pictures of the Berndt crayon drawings, when I saw them I wanted to do that same raypiny story like my father had done.’
