PAINTING STORY

Lukarrara Jukurrpa (Desert Fringe-rush Seed Dreaming)

This Jukurrpa belongs to women of the
Nakamarra/Napurrurla subsections and to
Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men. This Dreaming is associated
with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara
(desert fringe-rush [Fimbristylis oxystachya & Fimbristylis
eremophila]) is a grass with an edible seed. The seeds are
traditonally ground on a large stone (‘ngatinyanu’) with a
smaller stone (‘ngalikirri’) to make flour. This flour is mixed
with water (‘ngapa’) to make damper cakes which are
cooked and eaten. In Warlpiri traditional paintings
iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular
sites and other elements. Large concentric circles often
represent the site of Jaralypari and also the seed bearing
grass Lukurrara. ‘U’ shapes can depict the Karnta (women)
collecting ‘lukarrara’ and straight lines are frequently used
to portray seeds that fall down to the ground and are also
collected by women using their ‘parrajas’ (wooden food
carriers) and ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks).
