STORY - Mothers Dreaming

Mary Nampijinpa Nungabar paints several dreaming stories given to her by her mother. This particular painting combines a Snake Dreaming - from a location west of Kintore - and a Dog Dreaming. The painting tells the story of a water hole found below a hill, made by two dogs in the Dreamtime. The water is believed to have healing powers and can be found by digging along the stream-bed, found at the base of the hill.
