about this painting:  Janie paints Wangurnu, a rockhole site north of Patyarr.  In ancestral times there were 2 ladies making seed cakes.  A man came along who had a kangaroo – is was already cooked.  He offered the ladies some meat, and the ladies offered the man some seed cakes.  The women danced with the seed cakes in their hands.
