PAINTING STORY

Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming) – Puyurru

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurra, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are water soakages or naturally occurring wells. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. It travelled across the country, with the lighting striking the land. This storm met up with another storm from Wapuryali, to the west, was picked up by a ‘kirrkarlan’ (brown falcon [Falco berigora]) and carried further west until it dropped the storm at Purlungyanu, where it created a giant soakage.

At Puyurru the bird dug up a giant snake, ‘warnayarra’ (the ‘rainbow serpent’) and the snake carried water to create the large lake, Jillyiumpa, close to an outstation in this country. This story belongs to Jangala men and Nangala women. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional inconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. In many paintings of the Jukurrpa curved and straight lines represent the ‘ngawarra’ (flood waters) running through the landscape. Motifs frequently used to depict this story include small circles representing ‘mulju’ )water soakages) and short bars depicting ‘mangkurdu’ (cumulus and stratocumulus clouds).
