Sadie has depcited some of her TjaTja (grandmother’s) country called Ngantalara. A long time ago her people used to walk this country looking for the rockholes for water, but they couldn’t find them. They started burning the dry grasses across the soak plain so they could navigate that country in the future. When they went back they saw that site was really green, the rockhole had green grass around and they got very excited because they knew there was water for them to drink. In this painting, the soak water is in a dry spell, and the land around it is salt, and sandy.
