Description

The Arnkerrthe (Mountain Devil Lizard) is a gentle little lizard that is covered in thorns. For added protection it is able to camouflage itself by changing its skin colour with its surroundings. The changing of skin colour is represented by the colours used in this painting.

The Arnkerrthe is very sacred to Jean and the people of her country. In the Dreamtime, the Arnkerrthe travelled over Jean's land creating all of the people, sacred sites, songs and other Dreamtime stories.
