This acrylic painting is titled Karnta Jukurrpa (Women's Dreaming), painted by Aboriginal artist Samantha Napangardi Woods.
In 'Women's Dreaming', traditional Warlpiri iconography is often used to represent the women hunting for various bush foods. Long sinuous lines represent the snake vine and small circles are other bush foods that the women have collected, such as witchetty grubs, honey ants and bush bananas. Usually the women are represented by a 'U' shape and shorter, straight lines are their digging sticks which they use to collect the foods. Samantha has created this painting with the Warlukurlangu art centre in the Northern Territory, expressing a women's Dreaming story which has been passed down for millennia.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia. Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The art centre has a national and international profile and its art has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and publications in Australia and around the world.
