Claude Carter

This painting is of a place called Goongaroo that is very powerful area situated 90 kms south east of Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia.

The white section in the middle signifies the waterhole where the rainbow serpent comes through from the top of the painting down to the limestone hill where the serpent broke through and scattered the rock.

Today the rainbow serpent is still sleeping on top. My great great Grandmother said the water from the waterhole is called holy water because it brings back life to the people, the animals and the country.

My gift of painting came from this waterhole.
