Story: Vaughan Springs Dreaming

Pikilyi is a large and important waterhole and natural spring near Mount Dorren station. Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming) tells the story of the home of two rainbow serpents, ancestral heroes who lived together as husband and wife. The woman rainbow serpent was of the Napanangka and Warlpriri religious law. Women of the Napanagka and Napangardi subsection sat by the two serpents, picking lice off them. For this service the two serpents allowed the women to take from the springs. This was becuase the serpents were the 'kirda', or ceremonial owners for that country.

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