This style of painting is Ellaga's representation of the landscape of his country. Often it has to do with the movement of the native bee across the landscape.
"This is my Father's Country Dreaming. It is an important story for my people. It talks about the little bee that makes the sugar-bag and how it came to be in my country. It has traveled across from the other side and down. That is where the desert is today. Then up and up into my country and then even further...right through. We use the sugar-bag for many things and we mix it to make things stick to each other and for our weapons and tools. That is some of the things."
