The painting is titled Lappi Lappi Jukurrpa (Lappi Lappi Dreaming), based on a rock hole named Lappi Lappi near Lake Mackay in Western Australia, a site which is home to an ancestral rainbow serpent. It was painted by Warlukurlangu artist Antonia Napangardi Michaels. Antonia was born in 1998 and lives in Nyirripi where one of the Warlukurlangu art centres is located. She began painting with the organisation at just 12 years old. She is continuing her family's tradition of painting Lappi Lappi Jukurrpa which has been passed down through generations for many millennia and was taught to her by her grandmother. In a family of artists, she learnt to paint both in school and by watching her family paint and has developed her own modern individualist style whilst still incorporating traditional iconography in her artwork.
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.
