This is the "back side" of Uluru. It has to be said that the Ayers Rock is a very important spiritual place for the indigenous people. According to the dream time stories, a battle between two giant serpents has raged at this place, shaping various parts of the rock. The wavy line in the top third, for example, symbolizes one of these serpents attacking.
