The Artwork Story

Warna Jukurrpa

Based on an original artwork by Warlpiri Aboriginal artist, Valma Nakamarra White, the Desert Tracks design depicts a traditional Dreaming story about a mythical serpent ancestor called Warna, who is known as the creator of the main waterways and creeks on the Warlpiri homelands. According to the stories told by the Warlpiri people, the serpent was searching for his lost family and travelled across the desert to be reunited with them. The tracks of his tail on the ground formed the creeks and waterways. Valma grew up listening to her mother and father's Jukurrpa stories while watching her family paint.
