    This painting is sold with accompanying Papunya Tula Artists documentation that reads in part: 'This painting depicts designs associated with an Eagle Dreaming at a swamp site called Tjaru, north of Ngurapalangu in the area west of Kintore. The Dreamtime Eagle was said to have taken a joey or baby kangaroo, and transported it to his nest up in a tree. Ancestral beings poked at the nest with spears and eventually the joey was released.'
