The Artwork Story

The Sacred Ceremony design is based on an original painting by traditional Warlpiri artist, Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniels and depicts the Watiya-Warnu Jukurrpa, an ancient Warlpiri Dreaming story about the gathering of seeds from the Watiya-Warnu trees. The seeds are used by the Warlpiri women for medicinal purposes. There is an important women’s ceremony associated with the gathering of the seeds that involves the preparation of a large ground painting.

 

The artist, Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniels was born in 1956 in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 kilometres northwest of Alice Springs. Evelyn has been painting since 2001 with the internationally acclaimed Warlukurlangu Artists, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre based in Yuendumu. Evelyn’s paintings depict sacred Dreaming stories that relate to the traditions and beliefs of her Warlpiri ancestors. Evelyn is a distinguished Warlpiri artist whose paintings are exhibited in major art galleries around Australia and internationally.
