About the artwork:
The Red/Black Design - The artist, Ursula, paints her father’s Yuparli Jukurrpa (Bush Banana Dreaming) and Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming), which her Aunty taught her and her mother’s Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming). These "dreamings" have been passed down the generations for millennia and relate directly to the land, it's features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Ursula uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.
The Pink/Yellow Design - The ancestral Napangardi women performed ceremonies as they traveled, dancing and singing a landscape of rolling red sand dunes.
The Blue/Red Design - As they traveled to the east the ancestral Napangardi women created many places, using digging sticks to find bush food on their way.
