This major artwork has been painted by two acclaimed artists, the great granddaughter Clarise and daughter Kay of the famous Jimmy Baker. This is a story of creation & love, of an elderly spirit woman Marlilu who travelled across country in pursuit of her daughter. She dug a cave with tunnels; locals brought her food. She lived in the cave for years after failing to retrieve her daughter from the wrong man. They say you can feel her spirit when the cool wind blows through the cave.
