Luga - Cracked Mud

“When we were young, my sisters and cousins would play with dried and cracked mud flats, we called it Luga. In the wet seasons and after a big tide on the Sturt Creek the water would rise up on the black mud flats, as it dried it would turn crystal, like salt.”

Kittey has depicted the drying and cracked mud of her mother's country along Sturt Creek. She describes the area where she visited as a child along the banks and waterholes by the river as black soil country.
