The Artwork Story

Watiya-Warnu Jukurrpa ­­­­ (Sacred Ceremony Dreaming)

Resplendent in the rich natural colours of Australia’s iconic Red Centre, Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniels’ original artwork depicts an ancient Dreaming story, Watiya-Warnu Jukurrpa”, which was handed down to her through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors over thousands of years.

The story is about the gathering of seeds from the Watiya-Warnu trees.  The seeds are used by the Warlpiri women as a traditional medicine.   The ceremony associated with the gathering of the Watiya-Warnu seeds involves the preparation of a large ground painting.
