The Artwork Story

Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Desert Journey Dreaming)

The original artwork by Warlpiri Aboriginal artist Mary Napangardi Gallagher depicts the Dreamtime Story about a journey by a group of Warlpiri women who travelled across the desert gathering a vine called Ngalyipi. The Ngalyipi vine has long been used by the Warlpiri women for sacred ceremonies. The vine also has medicinal uses.
