“This is stone country – when I walk across my country there are many rocks and small stones. We call them Gerran. In the wet season the rivers are filled with beautiful coloured stones”.
This painting also tells another story. It is a corroboree story handed down to Phyllis by her father that describes the boundaries of the stony Miriwoong country as well as a representation of her traditional country at Woorroo Worrem east of Kununurra in the Kimberley region. In the corroboree the dancers walk to the north, the east, the south and the west outlining the stone Miriwoong country. As this story was given to the artist she passes it on to her children and grandchildren.
