Mountain Devil Lizard is tiny speacies of Australian reptiles.

Gloria and her sister Kathleen Petyarre both depict in their artworks.

The Dreaming is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, of its creation, and its great stories.

The Dreamtime is the beginning of knowledge, from which came the laws of existence. For survival these laws must be observed.

The Dreamtime world was the old time of the Ancestor Beings. They emerged from the earth at the time of creation. Time began in the world the moment these supernatural beings were "Born out of their own Eternity"

One of Gloria Petyarre's dreamings is about "Old Lady Arnkerth". Spirit of Old Lady Arnkerth appeared on earth at the dreamtime in the shape of Mountain Devil Lizard. This creature travels around all the time in the desert, and to Mt Bullocky, in Gloria's language Apmakweng, the big apwert (hill). In Gloria's dreaming the old lady travels around while celebrating and dancing on the mountain, by herself.

Gloria Petyarre depicts the old lady (Mountain Devil Lizard) in different colours.
