The artist has painted a number of game animals found in the Stone Country of West Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia. Animals common in the sandstone plateau country include nadjinem, the male black rock wallaby, kalawan the goanna and ngarrbek the echidna. Other common reptiles are kurndamen the frill-necked lizard and milhdarl the blue-tongued lizard. Smaller animals such as yalang the centipede and marla the scorpion are sometimes painted but not eaten. Figures are often painted in the Kunwinjku “x-ray” style with their internal organs shown indicating that they are game animals.
