Artist statement, c.2001We have been visiting this place. The man with two wives, he’s been hunting all around this part. This is a Dreaming story from a long time ago. He’s the same man that the two wives did not want to make a fire for at Pundarr (in another painting). (Croft, Indigenous Art: Art Gallery of Western Australia, 2001)
