Holy Water


Claude Carter

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

The black on top is the limestone hill where the plants are and the water flows. It goes through the rocks and into the waterhole washing the bush medicine into the waterhole turning it into a healing place.

Paintings for us are like books for Kartiyas ('white fellas') where we record places of importance and share the knowledge through the generations.
