Charlie produced an excellent piece of artwork – Caming Ground. In the artwork, he depicted that people from various places gathered in the ground to attend the corroboree. In this design, he represented the middle large tent as the main function area. people are joining the corroboree from various places. There are smaller or medium tents so that they can take rests if needed. However, the main meeting place is a large tent. All the important discussions and other activities would take place under a large tent. Elders are also in this tent. They normally talk to the attendee about how to maintain the social order, various problems of society, etc. People will listen to the elders very quietly. They discuss all sorts of community problems without any fear.
The U shaped motives in this artwork around the boundaries of the tent refer to men, women, and children. They are taking rests or quietly walking. Dotted lines are the paths for people’s movement. Larger dots represent bush food and waterholes.
