The image at the top of this work represents the Bungle Bungle range of mountains, while the other elements are intended to evoke a sense of long journeys that early explorers made to these places.

Australian context:

The Bungle Bungle Range is the landform that is the major component of the Purnululu National Park in Western Australia. The traditional human inhabitants of the area are the Kitja peoples.

The distinctive beehive-shaped towers are made up of sandstones and conglomerates. These sedimentary formations were deposited into the Ord Basin 375 to 350 million years ago. The combined effects of wind from the Tanami Desert and rainfall over millions of years shaped the domes. Weathering also helped create this marvel. Water seeps into the rock, and at night it expands as it gets colder. This creates small cracks which eventually wears out the rocks.
