CULTURAL INSPIRATION: This picture of Two Elderly Beings—“Djanggural” and Spirit People Yirrminyunung comes from a site located at the main Garnawala Rock Shelter, Innersvale, Northern Territory. At Garnawala you will find a series of large rocky outcrops in a very isolated area. These particular paintings focus on the Rainbow Serpent and Yirrminyunung stories. The small matchstick-like figures that are decorated on the main gallery, facing south are the young spirits. They are being guarded by Two Elderly Beings painted on the wall above them.
