Story: Janganpa

This painting depicts 'Janganpa Jukurrpa', the Brushtail Possum Dreaming story that travels all across Warlpiri country. This story originates from a big hill called 'Mawurrji'. A group of 'Janganpa'(Brushtail Possum) ancestors once resided there. Every night they would go out in search of food in various locations. A Nampijinpa woman was living at Mawurrji with her two daughters. She gave her daughters in marriage to a Janganpa, but later decided to run away with them. The Janganpa angrily pursued the woman and her daughters and tracked them to Mawurrji where he killed them with a stone axe. Their bodies are now rocks at this place.
