The figures from this rock painting are of the Dream Time, Australian Aboriginal stories of creation.
The main character in the main is Namondjok. He committed incest with one of his clan sisters and later became Ginga, the great salt water crocodile.
That is his wedding tackle hanging down.
The alien looking being to the right is Namarrgon, he is the lightning man. Kind of like Thor he makes the lightning and also thunder by hitting
clouds with an axe.
The female figure is Barrginj pronounced barr-jeen, who is Namarrgon's wife. Their children are the Alyurr, beautiful orange and blue grasshoppers who
gave the local Aboriginal people their language, beliefs, values and structure of their society during the Creation Time.
The English divided Australia into 7 seperate states and territories, before them there was over 200 Aboriginal nations. All of who had their own
language, laws and customs, although some shared similar language and customs. I think they are awesome as it gives us an idea of how our own earliest
The rock gallery that shows this particular painting was still being used in the 1960's.
