Judy Napangardi Watson Jukurrpa 2006
Acrylic on linen 1200 x 1800mm $27500
This painting depicts the "Jukurrpa" or Dreaming of the ancestral Napangardi and Napanangka women who travelled east
gathering food and performing ceremonies. They collected "ngalyipi" (Tinospora smilacina or snake vine) and performed
ceremonies as they travelled to Janyinki and ceremonial sites. Their journey took them eventually beyond Warlpiri country.
The central motif in this painting is ceremonial hair bands depicted as arc shapes on either side of the painting. The parallel
linework represents the landscape on each side of the painting.
