This painting is titled Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming) and it was created by Warlukurlangu artist Justine Nakamarra Nelson.
The dreaming story in this painting comes from an area called Cockatoo Creek, to the east of Yuendumu where Justine paints for the Warlukurlangu Art Centre. The bush potato ('yarla') and bush carrot ('wapirti') ancestors fought a big battle in the Cockatoo Creek area. Traditional Warlpiri iconography is used in Aboriginal paintings such as this one, so we can see that the specific site associated with Justine's painting is a water soakage ('mulju') called Ngarparapunyu.
