Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa Unframed Art Print
Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa Unframed Art Print - Bold, concentric circles make up the focal point of this clean and contemporary Indigenous Aboriginal artwork piece, and are surrounded by thick, branching songlines. By contrasting vivid blue tones with warm mustard and ochre elements, the artist has created a piece that is both considered, yet mesmerising.
Urban Road is committed to investing a stream of ongoing financial support back into the Yuendumu and Nyirripi artist community. For every Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa artwork sold, a percentage of the sale price goes directly back to the artist.
This Indigenous Aboriginal artwork depicts the Fire Country Dreaming, and belongs to Warlukurlangu country. It tells the story of the old man 'lungkarda' (centralian bluetongued lizard) who lived on a hill with his two Jangala sons. The old man, feigning blindness, would send his sons off hunting in search of meat, meanwhile he would hunt and indulge in the spoils while they were away.
One day, his sons returned from a long hunt with a kangaroo - an animal that they did not know was sacred to the old man. Incredibly angry, the old man decided to punish his sons, so when they next went out to hunt, he put his fire stick to the ground and sent an enormous bush fire after them, chasing them for many miles. As hard as they tried to escape and beat out the flames, the old man's sacred magic kept the fire alive, eventually overcoming the exhausted boys.
In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites, and other elements. Usually, sites that are depicted in paintings of this Jukurrpa include Warlukurlangu (a men's cave), Kirrkirrmanu (where the sacred kangaroo was killed), Wayililinypa (where the fire killed the two Jangala sons), and Marnimarnu (a water soakage) where the two Jangalas camped.
Bring the richness of Indigenous Aboriginal culture and timeless storytelling traditions into your home with this intricately painted and breathtaking artwork.
