Story: Wapurtali Water 

This 'Ngapa Jukurrpa' (Water Dreaming) comes from Wapurtali - Mt. Singleton, west of Yuendumu. In the Dreamtime, a kangaroo was cooked at a place called Jalkirri. The smoke from the fire formed 'Milpirri' (cumulonimbus clouds), and it began to rain. This caused a giant storm to form, which travelled west to other Dreamtime locations.

Due to the delicate nature of these original paintings, each will be carefully packaged and shipped within 1 week.
