Cowboy Louie Pwerle is one of the highly regarded Elders of Utopia and is senior custodian for the Bush Turkey Ancestor. Here he depicts a very important creation site for the Bush Turkey Ancestor on his land.


Cowboy illustrates his Bush Turkey Dreaming using traditional dot symbols on a background of dark, earthy colours. His work is characterised by various geometric shapes outlined in dots representing the tracks of the Bush Turkey as it roams over the bushland in search of tucker.


Note: The Bush Turkey spends much of its time walking and is therefore an easy target for the hunter. They are a much sought after source of tucker.


Bush Turkey - he goes there - all over my country - he makes tracks to this waterhole. - Cowboy Louie Pwerle
