Artist statementOld time story, not Dreamtime. People story – real one. This is a real story. One day they went hunting near this waterhole. My father went over to Canning Stock Route with other wife, left mother and little sister at waterhole. One day they went hunting from waterhole. They make bushfire in thick grass, spinifex. Make big fire, burn big, stand at edge. Little kangaroo and goanna run out. Then they hear noise like dragonfly at swamp. Plane come right into fire and drop something (a bomb) on fire. Mother and children hide under bush and tree. They went back to waterhole. Then they come back they find that place, they find bits of tin from that thing. Still there today. (O'Ferrall, Jimmy Pike - Desert Designs, 1995)
