Across Northern Australia, the Lightning Man is a symbol describing the power of lightning and wet season storms. The radiating lines from his head represent lightning. His elongated phallus represents connection with the earth. Dotting outlining his body represents wet season rains. Patrick Bitting says of the work: "This is Lightning Man from my mother's country."
