Title : Balgo Story
Size/Medium : 900 x 600mm: acrylic on linen Painting
In the painting Eva tells the story of Balgo in the early days. People would travel from Balgo to Billiluna to Sturt Creek on a donkey for Law time. Her parents would go hunting at Wolf Creek Crater with a kipilpa (coolamon) to carry the goanna. Her mother said “I wonder what that hill is?” and climbed up it and saw the big hole of the crater, she threw the goanna and ran for her life… she had never seen anything like that before! She went back and told all the other mob.
