Story: Pikilyi Jukurrpa
'Pikilyi' is a large waterhole and natural spring near Mount Doreen station. This painting tells a Dreaming story of two rainbow serpents; ancestral heroes who lived together as man and wife. Women would sit by the two serpents, picking lice off them. For this service, the serpents would allow the women to take water from the springs at Pikilyi.
