The gnamma holes were created by lighting a fire on the slope of a large granite slab in order to crack the hard rock. A hollow would then be gouged out of the rock surface forming a hole. Gnamma holes, are especially important to Aboriginal people to store and capture and trap water during the summer months.

Yondee was born 1964, south of Perth. He has been painting since his childhood and has had many exhibitions locally and internationally.
