Jukurrpa Dreamtime Stories of Yuendumu

Artist: Charlene Napanangka Marshall

Story: Wanakiji Jukurrpa (Bush Tomato Dreaming)

 

This aboriginal artwork depicts Wanakiji Jukurrpa the bush tomato found north of Yuendumu in NT, Australia. “Wanakiji” grows in open spinifex country and is a small, prickly plant with purple flowers that bears green fleshy fruit with many small black seeds. After collecting the fruit the seeds are removed with a small wooden spoon.

The fruit then can be eaten raw or threaded onto skewers and cooked over a fire. ‘Wanakiji’ can also be skewered and let to dry. When they are prepared in this way it is called ‘turlturrpa’ and the fruit can be kept for a long time. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa (dreaming), particular sites and other elements.

Royalties from the Jukurrpa Face Mask Collection go directly back to the aboriginal artists that created them (Warlukurlangu Artists) and support one of Australia's longest standing 100% Aboriginally owned and run art centres to continue to produce works that encapsulate timeless tales of survival of one of the worlds harshest landscapes and climates.
