Story: Yankirri Jukurrpa
This painting depicts Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming). The story tells of an emu and a bush turkey who would go about collecting bush raisins to create ‘Kapurdu’ (fruit balls) together. Through Margaret's painting, you can clearly see the large prints of the emu and smaller ones of the bush turkey. Today, at Ngarlikirlangu, you can still see round, red rocks which are the ‘Kapurdu.’ A number of Dreamtime stories are based in the Ngarlikirlangu area.
Stunning Silk Shawls
I purchased 4 shawls in total. The first two were Xmas gifts and the responses were so wonderful I purchased 2 more with the Jukurppa being just for me. These are a perfect gift and a perfect reward to yourself. Soft, beautiful and can be worn in so many ways. They absolutely take a plain outfit or casual look to the next level.
Stunning colours, good length and unique design make this a amazing accessory for a outfit.
Beautiful Shawl purchased for a birthday present
Bought this for my son’s mother-in-law’s 70th birthday. She loves it as did the other guests. I think they were jealous. Gorgeous design, beautiful colours.
Very happy with this purchase. Good quality silk chiffon.
