Notes

Trivia

  • In an interview, Tim Sale said that he intended the painting of Uluru to resemble comic book covers illustrated by Jack Kirby. (See here for examples of old Kirby covers.)
  • Uluṟu is the indigenous Aboriginal name given to a rock formation in central Australia, which was renamed Ayers Rock by white settlers. Due to its composition, it is known for appearing to change color at different times of the day, ranging from red to rust to silvery grey.
    • Many aboriginal legends about the rock abound. One tells of warring serpent beings who scarred the rock. Another tells of two tribes of spirits who did not attend a feast they were invited to because they were diverted by beautiful Sleepy Lizard Women. A great battle ensued between these tribes and the offended hosts. Because of the bloodshed, the earth rose up in grief, forming Uluṟu. Another myth says that spirits of those who died on or around Uluṟu are bound to the area forever, and that those who take rocks from the formation are stealing and thus will be cursed for disturbing the spirits.
  • Isaac of Uluru, an Australian faith healer, is a character on the show Lost.
