Story: Honey Ants

This painting depicts the Honey Ant Dreaming. This Dreaming story has special significance for Warlpiri people living in Yuendumu because the story passes right through the Yuendumu community. The honey ant ancestors made passages and chambers underground as they travelled, which created the soakages that remain today. 'Yarrampi' (honey ants) are a prized delicacy, considered well worth the enormous effort it takes to dig them out of the ground. Honey ant nests can be located by looking for honey ants that are walking around on the ground and following them back to the entrance of their nest.

Due to the delicate nature of these original paintings, each will be carefully packaged and shipped within 3 weeks.
