This is the story of the Thorny Devil Lizard.
The dots represent the thorny skin and the tracks the Lizard makes as it crosses the desert in search of food and water. The different colours reflect how the lizard changes its skin colour with the changing temperature of the sun and when under threat.
Not only does the Thorny Devil Lizard make good eating, because of its spines it makes an ideal hairbrush.
Jacinta is one of six sisters and three brothers. Her Mother is Barbara Price Mbitjana from Stirling Station near Tenant Creek who is also an artist and her late Father was a well known stockman and brother to Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre.
