This painting is titled Lukarrara Jukurrpa (Desert Fringe-rush Seed Dreaming) by Gisella Napaljarri Dickson. The site of this Dream time story is in Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu where Gisella creates her paintings with the Warlukurlangu organisation. She uses traditional Warlpiri iconograpjhy in her modern interpretations of these stories which have been passed down through generations for many millennia. Large concentric circles represent the seed-bearing Lukarrara grass which is traditionally harvested with the seeds ground to make flour which is the main ingredient for a traditional cake when mixed with water.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu 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.
