Lindsay’s dreamings include ‘Charpa’ (honey ant), ‘Bush Plum”, ‘Men’s Ceremony”, “Yam Dreaming” and ‘Snake Dreaming”.

One of the themes to Lindsay’s painting is his reference to sacred ceremonial sites where “men’s’ business” is conducted. Lindsay most often depicts these sites in a circular style surrounded by hunting weapons which are the spirits keeping the area safe.

These paintings are simple in their design but very strong in their meaning reflecting Lindsay’s respect for the ceremonies conducted at these sites.
