Product Description

This Painting is about the Mulga Worm Dreaming. It shows
the worms that are found around mulga trees and women
who are walking and collecting the worms. The worms have
two teeth. They are used in ceremony. The country
connected with this Dreaming is called Nalurwindi. The
custodians of the Dreaming are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men
and Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women and the kurdungurlu – the
managers of the Dreaming who have to assure that rituals
are performed correctly – are Jakamarra/Jampijinpa men
and Nakamarra/Nampijinpa women.
