Tracking animals around the Riverbeds – 2022
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 30 x 30 cm (pre-stretched)
Animals move around the riverbeds looking for water – some riverbeds dry up when the wet season is over, and some have water all of the time.
Our people watch the sand and mud around the rivers and creeks to see what kinds of animals are moving around and nearby,. We can see if there are animals that we want to hunt, like kangaroos, and we can also see if there are dangerous ones to stay away from like crocodiles.
Sometimes we even see tracks where snake’s have been.
