STORY - Brush-tail Possum

'Janganpa' (Brushtail Possum) are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees. They were once very common in the country surrounding Yuendumu. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the tracks of the 'Janganpa.' They are often represented in 'E' shaped figures and concentric circles are used to depict the trees in which they live.
