Paddy Japaljarri Stewart Wakapartari Jukurrpa (Mulga Worm Dreaming) 2012
Acrylic on Belgian linen
1070 x 610mm

This Painting is about the Mulga Worm Dreaming. It shows the worms that are found around mulga trees and women who are walking and collecting the worms. The worms have two teeth. They are used in ceremony. The country connected with this Dreaming is called Nalurwindi. The custodians of the Dreaming are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women and the kurdungurlu - the managers of the Dreaming who have to assure that rituals are performed correctly - are Jakamarra/Jampijinpa men and Nakamarra/Nampijinpa women.
