Rain Maker

Rain Maker is a Frog - freshwater story. Frog Dreaming and Freshwater Dreaming stories relate to this one as well. In this particular painting the big old frog on the ledge to the left might be talking to the younger frogs. Telling them a frog yarn  about the one who drank all the water and refused to share it. All the other  animals tried to get him to talk or open his mouth to let the water out but they failed. Then one frog, a joker , made him laugh and out came all the water. 

Freshwater and humour are very important to our people.
