about :

Paddy paints the story of Mungapunja, a hill just to the east of Yuendumu.  In the Dreamtime possums climbed this hill looking for food.  They climbed by moonlight, moving from the hollow of one tree to another.  As they traversed the sand their tails left sinuous tracks and their feet “E” shaped prints.
