Description/Remarks    Image is divided into distinct areas of yellow, blue, green and red ochre by sinuous blue lines ornamented with cream-coloured dots. The red-ochre and yellow sections each contain a single, circular shape patterned with dotted concentric circles. From Waringarri Aboriginal Arts - "Print Description: Benengoogwalem is my traditional country. It is the place where a freshwater spring bubbles up from on top of the ridge and splits into two little creeks. There is a waterhole here surrounded by Nhal nhal (waterlillies). The creeks join up as they flow towards Moonoomoorrem (the Keep River)."
