Lawrence Pennington is at times the Walawuru (wedge tailed eagle) surveying the canvas before him. He applies the paint as he peers down on the sparse landscape he creates, interspersed with powerful iconography that is mentioned in hushed tones.

For this is the significant site of Nyuman that holds the Walawuru Tjukurpa (Wedge Tailed Eagle Creation Line) and this is Lawrence’s country. This is a powerful narrative that follows the eagle as it traverses Spinifex lands. These are creation beings and as such held the power to transform the landscape as they moved through it, leaving monolithic physical reminders together with a religious narrative for people to follow.
