Tjaruwa (Angelina) Woods
Title: Waratata
Price: $2900.00 in Australia and Export.
PA1501, 2014
Acrylic on linen canvas
85 x 110 cm
Tjaruwa has painted the area around which she was born and grew up. Her family was the last people to emerge from the Great Victoria Desert in 1986 where she maintained a traditional hunter gatherer lifestyle until the wider Spinifex group decided to "bring them in." In this work she has painted Minyma Tjilkamata (the Echidna Woman) Tjukurpa from Waratata. The woman left the rock hole and travelled to Watjula a large rocky area in breakaway country. She died here and her body forms the large rock formations. Here water is to be found not in rockholes but in the crevices and cracks within the rock surface.

Title: Mininypa Jukurrpa
Price: $500.00 in Australia and Export.
PA812, 2014
Acrylic on canvas
46 x 76 cm
The Mininypa Jukurrpa (native fuchsia Dreaming) is about a Jungarrayi man called Lintipilinti who lived at Ngarlu, which means ‘red rock’, a country to the east of Yuendumu. Lintipilinti fell in love with a Napangardi woman, a forbidden relationship under Warlpiri law, as the woman was his classificatory mother-in-law. Lintipilinti fell in love with the Napangardi woman when he saw the large hole in the ground she made when she urinated. Lintipilinti was aroused by this. He began to wonder how he could woo the Napangardi. He went to Ngarlu and made hair string for her, singing as he worked. The Napangardi woman could not sleep and began to feel sick. She realized that someone was singing Yilpinji (love songs) for her. A little bird visited the Napangardi woman every day. The little bird was taking the Jungarrayi’s love songs to her. The force of the Jungarrayi’s love songs pulled the Napangardi woman to Lintipilinti. When the two met again they made love but they were turned to stone, as their relationship was taboo according to Warlpiri religious law. The two can still be seen, as two rocks at Ngarlu today. During the course of these events the women from Ngarlu who gossiped about the wrong skin love union turned into ‘miinypa’. These are plants are also called ‘yanyirlingi’. They have small red flowers with honey inside them which are delicious to eat, tasting like ice-cream. Ngarlu is a sacred place where ‘miinypa’ are still commonly found today.
