Description :
Sissie Matthews nous raconte ici l'histoire d'un homme au temps du Rêve, venu de très loin à Kurra, près de la route Canning Stock en Australie occidentale.
Tombé amoureux d'une femme déjà prise, il fut tué après s'être battu avec le mari jaloux.

Son squelette est encore visible dans la forme étrange d'un groupe de rochers à cet endroit.
L'artiste a grandi dans la région et y a campé près d'un point d'eau avec sa famille.
Elle avait l'habitude de partir avec les autres femmes à la recherche de nourriture, comme des tomates sauvages ou kumpupatja.

The painting tells of events from the mythical past when a man came here from far off parts and took offence to another man's wife.
There was a fight and he was killed and today his body is seen in an unusual rock formation.

The artist grew up around here and camped near the waterhole with her familly.
She would go out with the women to collect foods such as kumpupatja or wild tomato.
