This is the totem for my father's grandmother clan. This painting belong to Balmawuy of Dipirri Homeland. No-one lives there anymore and we have a responsibility to maintain the culture for the area.

The 2 x longneck turtles call Minhala are actually dancing toward each other.

The long-necked turtle is the main clan totem.
