This painting depicts Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming). The story tells of an emu and a bush turkey who would go about collecting bush raisins to create ‘Kapurdu’ (fruit balls) together. Through Margaret's painting, you can clearly see the large prints of the emu and smaller ones of the bush turkey. Today, at Ngarlikirlangu, you can still see round, red rocks which are the ‘Kapurdu.’ A number of Dreamtime stories are based in the Ngarlikirlangu area.

Yankirri Jukurrpa Earrings
Great colours and good quality
Moved a little out if my comfort zone with these earrings, I'm usually a stud earring wearer, but glad I did, love the colour and style.
Bought these as a gift, the colours and quality are great. Have no doubt I’ll be shopping at yarn again soon!
Bold & beautiful
These are going to my niece overseas, for her birthday, she loves earrings - the bigger the better & blue is her fav colour! I love the design I think she will too. I cant wait to see a picture of her wearing them! I am suprised that they are so light - i like that the metal backing is so thin but strong. Beautifully made, excellent value for money.
Light and beautiful
Same as my other earrings, they are beautiful and very comfortable to wear. ♥️
