Carol Maayatja Golding was born at Walu rockhole not far from Warakurna.
This painting depicts a story from Carol's birth country. There were two men and one little boy camping at Walu. The men went hunting and left the little boy behind. The men returned with an emu and pulled out it's heart. The boy was holding the heart and blood spilt onto the rocks. He ran away with the heart and turned into wind. The emu's blood trail stained the rocks and can still be seen there today.
