Mina Mina Jukurrpa II Framed Canvas Art Print
Mina Mina Jukurrpa II Canvas Art Print – Bright and almost playful in appearance, this Indigenous Aboriginal artwork piece features a mosaic of concentric circles in a candy-toned colour palette of pastel pink, blue, yellow and peach.
This Indigenous Aboriginal artwork depicts the story of the women that danced in celebrations of the ‘mulju’ (Summer rains) at the Mina Mina, a very important women’s Dreaming site in the Northern Territory of Australia, while collecting ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks).
Their journey took them to far lands across the Northern Territory – from the west to the east of Yuendumu – creating many places as they went, while dancing, digging and collecting many ceremonial elements, such as ‘parraja’ carrying vessels made from ‘ngalyipi’, the snake vine that grows on the desert oak tree known as ‘kurrkara’. The Napangardi women embraced the opportunity to be with one another, and when they stopped, they delighted in bush tucker from the area, like the delicious desert truffle ‘jintiparnta’. The Dreaming track eventually took them far beyond Warlpiri country, into Queensland.
In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. In many paintings of this Jukurrpa, sinuous lines are used to represent the ‘ngalyipi’ (snake vine). Concentric circles are often used to represent the ‘jintiparnta’ (desert truffles) that the women have collected, while straight lines can be used to depict the ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks).
