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: Ngapa Puyurru

This Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming) painting is set in Puyurru, a site west of Yuendumu. Here, the usually dry creek beds are 'mulju' (water soakages), or naturally ocurring wells. The story goes that two rainmakers - Jangala men - unleashed a great storm over the country providing it with much needed water.
