Les' country is in the Roper River region of Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory of Australia. For Les' style of art only the four achre colours are used; they are very important. Les also paints many of our didgeridoos.
Only the four ochre colours are used. Yellow for the sun, red for the blood of Mother Earth; she bleeds for you when you are born and when you die. White is used for body designs in ceremony. Black has secret meanings but is also the charcoal rubbed into cuts to create raised scars for tribal markings.
