Ngurlu Jukurrpa (Native Seed Dreaming)

Nakamarra/Napurrurla women and Jakamarra/Jupurrurla
men. The Jukurrpa is associated with a place called
Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara is a species of
Fimbristylis, a grass that bears edible seeds in the winter-
time. The seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone
(‘puturlu’) with a smaller stone (‘ngalikirri’) to make flour.
This flour is mixed with water (‘ngapa’) to make small seed
cakes. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional
iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular
sites and other elements. In paintings of this Jukurrpa large
concentric circles are used to represent Jaralypari and dots
surrounding these circles are otien depicting the ‘ngurlu’.
