Story: Brushtail Possum
Artist: Pamela Napurrurla Walker
'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.

The earrings are really beautiful. I was surprised at how solid they are, but that only makes them better. I love these and totally recommend them.
I love my bush possum earrings and I have a lot of people ask me where I got them. Comfortable too, not heavy on the earlobes.
