The painting represents the artist’s Great Grandmother’s Songline, the Stone Dreaming. The Dreaming is a powerful Songline used by people for great ceremony of strength, spirituality, harmony and resilence. The Stones are white in colour represented by the white circles and dots in the painting. The people of country call for the stones and they are dropped to those that call for the stones from the Sacred Bird. The painting shows the stones snaking across the night sky as people call for help from the Stone Dreaming.
