Story: Lappi

This artwork tells the story of Lappi Lappi Dreaming. The Dreaming story takes place at a small rock hole near Lake Hazlett. The rock hole is home to a rainbow serpent. The story goes that in the Dreamtime a group of women were gathered at the rock hole and the serpent silently approached them. When it reached the edge of the rock hole, it rose out of the water and ate them all.

Due to the delicate nature of these original paintings, each will be carefully packaged and shipped within 1 week.
