Mulga Worm and Duck Dreaming

Artist: Paddy Stewart

Story: 'Mulga Worm and Duck Dreaming' by Paddy Stewart. This painting is depicting two dreaming stories, the Mulga Worm dreaming and Duck dreaming. The place in the painting is associated with the country at Yakurrukaji, which is near Yuendumu. This painting shows the tracks of the duck dreaming gathering at a water hole.   The rest of the painting shows the worms that can be found around mulga trees and the tunnels they make. These underground chambers have created the natural soakages which can be found all over this part of the country.
