A somewhat cheeky portrayal of the female figure in this rock art image from Western Arnhem land. The artist has not only exaggerated the nipples but has carefully added a spiky bush of pubic hair, something that is quite unusual. On the right she has a woven dilly bag hung around her neck and in her left hand (at the viewer’s right) she carries a goose-wing feathered fan.
