Artist: Michael Tommy Jabanardi

Language Group: Anmatjerre

Home: Mount Allan

Country of Story: Mount Allan

Date of Birth: 1960

Dreaming: Yuelamu, Goanna

Price: AUD$1,300

This is the major goanna dreaming which pases through Mount Allan and Napperby Stations, and it is Michael's Father's country.

Two of the sites on Mount Allan are where the goanna ancestor ancestor defecated, creating a deposit of white ochre used in sorry ceremonies, and the site of a huge rock surrounded by smaller ones, where the goanna ate too much and exploded.

The goanna represented is the Perenti, the largest species in Australia, and a voracious hunter.
