Artwork Description

This story of the Pirlarla Jukurrpa (dogwood tree bean Dreaming) comes from the country near to the Yiningnarra range, south of Rabbit Flat and several hundred kilometers to the north-west of Yuendumu. This Jukurrpa travels west and begins near Yumurrpa. There, women of the Napurrula/Nakamarra subsection travelled and collected the ‘pirlarla’ (seeds and pods) of the ‘wakirlpirri’ (dogwood [Acacia coriacea]) tree, a valuable and highly prized food source. In the hot summer time the ‘pirlarla’ seed pods are collected, burnt in a fire and then cracked open. The seeds inside the pods are then ground up and make a good food. The juice from the seeds is also edible. In Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. In paintings of this Jukurrpa the representative designs that are painted onto women’s bodies during their Yawulyu ceremonies are often shown. The custodians of the Pirlarla Jukurrpa are Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men and Nakamarra/Napurrurla women.

Loving how Kirstie finds brilliant artists and shares not only the artwork, but the back story of both the piece AND the artist. You can tell she absolutely loves Aboriginal art, and she has such great rapport with the artists.
