Howard McLarty has painted the Blue Tongue Lizard dreaming which was given to him by the old people, who took Howard to the country and told him the story. There were 5 lizards, and the mother drowned so the father carried the babies on his back from Looma to Balgo and Mulan. When he finished the journey he stood on a big hill and could see five hills where he had walked. This area is Men’s law ground.
