This unique acrylic painting is titled Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming) by Jillian Nakamarra Dixon at Warlukurlangu artists.
Jillian Nakamarra Dixon was born in Katherine in 1982. She usually lives in Lajamanu. She paints the ‘Mina Mina’ Dreaming story which is the story of her grandfather from mother’s side. Mina Mina is an important women's dreaming site near Lake Mackay. It is where ancestral women danced and digging sticks rose from the ground which allowed them to hunt for bush tucker. In traditional Warlpiri paintings, concentric circles often represent either specific sites or the food which in this case the women would have collected, such as desert truffles. The women would gather these foods and use their digging sticks to hunt whilst on their journeys.
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.
