Aboriginal rock art depicting Wandjina figure

Wandjina figures are among the most visually striking of all ancient Aboriginal art found in the Kimberley region. These scenes, created by the Worrorra people on a cave ceiling at Raft Point in Collier Bay, are said to depict a "great fish chase," showing figures representing both rock cod and dugong and their Wandjina captors. These paintings, estimated to be about 8000 years old, were restored recently by Kimberley Aboriginal artist Donnie Woolagoodja.
