Description
Garimala, the King Brown snake is shown rising up out of the waterhole which is located by a rock, Ngamiyukandji near the confluence of the Limmen Bight and Cox Rivers. The snake is spotted and flashes emanate from its body, a manifestation of power. The Limmen Bight River is depicted between two of the Four Arches.
