Story

Janganpa Jukurrpa (Common Brush-tail Possum Dreaming) travels all over Warlpiri country. This part of the story comes from a big hill called Mawurrji, west of Yuendumu and north of Pikilyi (Vaughan Springs). There is a Mulju (water soakage) there that was created by Janganpa ancestor. In the painting the ‘e’ shaped figures represents the possum tracks. The concentric circles are the trees in which the possums live, and also the sites at Mawurrji. Warlpiri people have a young men’s initiation ceremony with Janganpa Jukurrpa.
