Walter Jangala Brown - Yumari Jukurrpa (Yumari Dreaming) Painting Nyirripi
Acrylic on Linen
183 x 122 cm
The site for this Dreaming is Yumari, a collection of rocks west of Kintore in the Gibson Desert.
Yumari is the site of a forbidden love union between a Japaljarri man and a Nangala woman. This Dreaming was passed down to the artist by a Pintupi man. In contemporary Walpiri paintings, traditional icongraphy is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements.
In this work concentric circles are often used to represent 'warnirri' (rock holes).
