Lappi Lappi is a rock hole site located near Lake Hazlett, approximately 90km Northwest of Lake Mackay in Western Australia. It is a permanent source of water and is surrounded by country rich in bush food.

In the Dreamtime, many mothers with young children would gather there because it was a safe place to stay. The rock hole at Lappi Lappi is home to a rainbow serpent that travels underground between various rock holes. One day, women were gathered at the rock hole with their children, singing and dancing. When the Rainbow Serpent heard the sound of voices, it traveled silently towards them, under the water. When it reached the edge of the rock hole, it rose out of the water and ate them all.

(S) This artwork is stretched and is currently hanging in the gallery.
