Wandjina was like a God to our people, they believed that he would fill up the river and the water holes and give them food, kangaroos, turtles and other animals. Gwion Gwion figures are found in rock art around Kalumburu. Some are hunters, and some are dancers, and some are the servants of the Wandjina
