This acrylic painting is titled Lappi Lappi Jukurrpa (Lappi Lappi Dreaming), painted by Aboriginal artist Kelly Napanangka Michaels.
Kelly was born in 1965 and grew up in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community in the Northern Territory where the Warlukurlangu art centre is based. She began painting with the centre in 1987 and does this whilst also caring for her grandchildren. She paints her Dreaming stories which are related to her traditional country and all features of the landscape as well as the plants, animals and people that live in it. For this painting she used stories of Lappi Lappi, a rock hole in Western Australia which is surrounded by rich bush tucker. This site is said to be home to an ancestral rainbow serpent which, one day, rose out of the water and ate all the women and children who were gathered at the rock hole.
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.
