The Finchley Aboriginal Site includes over 100 figures, including ancestral beings and an “emu woman”. There are four sites in close proximity.
One of the sites (Series 1) was thought to represent a “koala totemic site visited by ancestral beings consisting of a large hermaphrodite, a man and a boy”. The ancestral being or anthropomorph below is holding a sword club.
Another site (Series 3) consists of “two hunting compositions, emu and kangaroo, with the tracks of the animals but not of the hunters; the profile figure is probably a magician singing the emus”.
