The title of this painting is Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming) - Ngarlikurlangu. It was painted by Warlukurlangu artist Gregwyn Jupurrurla Gibson who uses traditional Warlpiri iconography to paint his Emu Dreaming stories which have been passed down to him through generations, over many millennia. You can see the arrow-like shapes in his artwork which represent the footprints of the Emu ancestors in the Dreamtime, who travelled to this site at Ngarlikurlangu for water at the rockhole, and walked around eating Yakajirri, bush raisin. There is also a dance for this Jurkurrpa which is performed during the men's initiation ceremony.
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.
