ARTWORK DESCRIPTION

The Jukurrpa or dreaming is connected with a place called Jaralypari which situated north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara is a species of Fimbristylis, a grass that produces tasty seeds in the winter-time. The seeds are customarily ground on a large stone (‘puturlu’) with a smaller stone (‘ngalikirri’) to make flour to be used to make bush tucker.  This flour is blended with water (‘ngapa’) to make small seed cakes.  In modern Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. In paintings of this Jukurrpa (deaming) large concentric circles are used to represent Jaralypari and dots surrounding these circles are often depicting the ‘ngurlu’.
