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.
