Story behind the piece: 'Ngapa Jukurrpa' / Water Dreaming
The country associated wit this 'ngapa Jukurrpa' (water Dreaming) is Mikanji, a watercourse that is usually dry. There are 'mulju' (soakage) in this creek bed. The 'kirda' (owners) of this Dreaming site are the Nangala/Nampijinpa and Jangala/Jampijinpa men. This artwork tells the story of three water Dreaming tracks. The water Dreaming travelled from Puyurru, northwest of Yuendumu, to a 'mulju' (soakage) in the Mikanji creek, it unleashed a huge storm, where two blind woman sat. They both strained their eyes to see the sky, tears forming in their eyes, creating the rain. Their spirits can still be seen at the Mikanji in the form of two 'ngapiri' (river red gums) growing near the soakage.
