about this painting: Johnny depicts designs associated with the Tingari site of Wilkinkarra or Lake Mackay. In mythological times a poisonous snake travelled to this site from far in the east.  When the snake arrived at Wilkinkarra it went into the lake resurfacing on the western side.  It later continued towards the west eventually reaching the rockhole site of Nyinmi, just to the east of Jupiter Well, where it was killed by a huge bushfire.
