A note on file mentions that John Patrick O'Loughlin, the Catholic Bishop of Darwin (1949-85), gave this this painting to WK Bolitho in around 1958-1960.
Ochres on shield-shaped bark. Painting depicts two people walking over a landscape of low hills, with trees at each end and a figure like a cave or a fire billowing smoke to the left. The figures are carrying spears, bags and a rectangular box or container. All figures outlined in white dots. Red background.
