We are very excited here at Yarn to now offer a number of incredible original paintings by Warlukurlangu Artists, an art centre based in the remote community of Yuendumu. The artists are famous for their gloriously colourful acrylic paintings that depict stories of the country around Yuendumu and Nyirripi, the Dreamtime and their ancestors.

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

Story: Mawurrji

This painting depicts Janganpa Jukurrpa (Brushtail Possum Dreaming) at a site called Mawurrji - a hill west of Yuendumu. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent Dreaming stories. In this painting 'Janganpa' tracks are represented by the E shaped figures, and the circles are the trees where the 'Janganpa' once lived.

Aboriginal Warlpiri woman

Pamela has been working with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation since 1994 but it wasn’t until 2006 that she began to paint full time. She paints her father’s Jukurrpa, Dreamings, which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it.
