Quinton carves of the tjukurrpa relating to his father and grandfather’s country. Along time ago, when the dreaming serpent was little a bell was placed around its neck. Over time, living in the Sturt Creek this serpent protected and cared for the people. The Sturt Creek is the main river that runs into Lake Gregory. At the base of the image you can see those old people, and in the middle is Sturt Creek and the serpent. Today, if you swim in this water you can on occasion hear the bell tingling as it adorns the Serpent Snake protecting its waters and looking after its people.
