In Wollombi, New South Wales Australia this is an aboriginal painting of Baiame an indigenous God. It is located on the back of a shallow cave and is a location where aboriginal ancestors worshiped. One of the unique features is if we look at the profile of the long arms of the image and then turn around, it duplicates the profile of the hills opposite. As an additional reason to consider this a special place of wonder, on two occasions a year, the setting sun which sinks behind the hill the cave is located in also casts a identical shadow profile on the hills the arms are fashioned after. This double image was noted and the site has been used as a special place for generations.
