This painting depicts a story from the Walu rockhole. There were two men and one little boy camping at the rockhole. The men went hunting and the little boy stayed. The men returned with an emu and pulled out its heart. The boy was holding the heart and blood spilt out onto the rocks. He run away with the heart and turned into wind. The emu’s blood trail stained the rocks, and it can still be seen there today.
