Story: Mina Jukurrpa
This painting shows Mina Mina Jukurrpa, a Dreamtime story. The story contains important information about the different roles that men and women play in Warlpiri culture, particularly in the context of ritual performances. It alludes to an earlier time in which their ritual and social roles were reserved. Women were the ones that controlled sacred objects and weapons which are now exclusively owned by men. The sinuous lines represent snakevine, the circles are desert truffle and the wavy lines are similar to the shapes of the hairstring skirts that the women would wear.
