CULTURAL INSPIRATION: My rendition of “The Lightning Brothers” rock picture comes from the upper Daly River, in the Northern Territory of Australia—home to the Wardaman people. The figure on the left is “Yagjagbula” and the figure on the right is his sibling—his younger brother, “Yabiringi”. They are sometimes referred to as “Pee-Wee Beings”. The white contrasting lines give a striped effect on their bodies, which represents falling rain. Wardaman people divide their rock art into two categories: “buwarraja”, which they believe were not made by people, but by Creator Beings from the Dreamtime; and “bulawula” pictures made by people.
