The Wak, Black Crow Dreaming, Design design depitcts a sacred site at 'Kurruldul' an outstation south of Maningrida. The 'rarrk' or abrstract crosshatching on this work repesents the design for the crow totem ancestor called 'Djimarr'. Today this being exists in the form of a rock, which is permanently submerged at the bottom of Kurrurldul Creek. The 'Djimarr' rock is said to move around and call a soft hooting tone at night. Both the stone itself and the area around it are considered sacred. See www.babbarra.com.
