  • Ben has depicted an important grasshopper dreaming site, Bilbim. "Elders used branches and leaves to wipe themselves under their arms and then on the rocks at Bilbijm. This would bring the grasshoppers (Bilbijy) to the area which provides food for all the other animals." The hill is depicted in the centre of the work surrounded by the water of Lake Argyle which has now flooded most of Ben's Country.
