The artist Marietta Nungarrayi Long  is from Yuendumu a remote Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory. She paints with Warlukurlangu Artists, a wholly Aboriginal owned art centre.

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are water soakages, or naturally occurring wells. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain and unleashed a giant storm. It travelled across the country, with the lightning striking the land. This storm met up with another storm from Wapurtali, to the west, was picked up by a ‘kirrkarlan’ (brown falcon) 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 many paintings of this story, curved and straight lines represent the ‘ngawarra’ (flood waters) running through the landscape. Further motifs frequently used to depict this story include small circles representing ‘mulju’ (water soakages) and short bars depicting ‘mangkurdu’ (cumulus & stratocumulus clouds).

This pre-stretched original Aboriginal artwork makes a unique Australian gift for birthdays, Christmas, weddings and other special occasions.
