The Artwork Story
Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Women’s Ceremony Dreaming)
Resplendent in the glorious, sun-drenched colours of the Australian Outback, Mary Napangardi Gallagher’s original artwork reflects the unique beauty of the desert homelands of her Warlpiri ancestors and the Dreaming stories, which have been handed down to her through many generations of her ancestors over tens of thousands of years.
The Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Women’s Ceremony Dreaming) depicts an ancient Dreaming story about a journey by a group of Warlpiri women who travelled across the desert gathering a tree vine called Ngalyipi. The vine has long been used by the Warlpiri women for sacred ceremonies.
The Ngalyipi vine also has medicinal uses.To learn more about Mary Napangardi Gallagher click here
