Ian has depicted the significant site of Tuwan, a large rockhole centrally located in traditional Spinifex Lands. Tuwan holds the Tjulpu Tjuta Tjukurpa (Many Birds Creation Line). This is an important Mens site that follows a group of Zebra Finch Men as they make their journey south to the coast. These are Creation Beings that manifest themselves as men, shape shifters who mould the landscape and the story as one. Leaving behind the physical manifestations of their power and presence that is still present today. Ian Rictor walked these lands, the songlines, until very recently and has a deep spiritual connection to the surrounding country.
