CULTURAL INSPIRATION: This drawing of a rock painting comes from Reedy Creek, on the southern slope of George Gill Range (east of Kings Canyon) in Watarrka National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia. To understand this drawing, imagine you are below the ground looking up. The Aboriginals explain that it represents an emu squatting on its haunches and is sitting on its clutch of eggs. Also showing from below can be seen its beak and feathers. On the Horn Expedition to central Australia in 1894 the Aboriginals gave this piece of art to Baldwin Spencer, leader of the expedition.
