Ngoia has painted her “Swamps and Lakes Near Nyrripi” dreaming. This is on a black background, her country dotted in yellow with oval shapes representing the swamps and lakes. The red dotting inside these shapes represents the water drying up, and the cracking of the earth. This is a very dangerous place for anyone to go, and it is said that the water snake lives underground here.
