        ART STORY

        This Kun-ngol design was created in 2006. It depicts certain clouds that signal to people of central Arnhem Land that the end of the wet season is approaching. After months of daily monsoonal rain in Arnhem Land, these clouds are light and fluffy, not like the dark heavy clouds of the monsoonal sky.

        At the time of the Kun-ngol clouds, people know the country will soon dry up and the cold season (dry season) will arrive. When the Kun-ngol clouds appear, all of the billabongs are already filled, the rivers are high and the country is brimming with life and fresh new growth after months of fresh water pouring from the sky.

        Elizabeth created this design at Bábbarra Women's Centre in Maningrida, East Arnhem Land.
