Brolgas at Nudagun

This paint shows. the brolgas in the dry season. At the end of the dry season in September large numbers of brolga gather on the mud flats near Nudagun performing their mating dance. 

The brolgas in this painting have the three circles representing the three Nudagun springs shown on their body. Nudagun (place of fire) is group of three springs on Jabirr Jabirr country and is our families homeland where we maintain a responsibility for story and country. There are two larger springs that are surrounded by a mud flat and get completely surrounded by water during spring tides. The smaller spring is hidden in the bush land and is near the living area.
