Jack Jakamarra Ross
Title: Ngapa, Pamapardu, Janganpa Manu Ngalyipi Jukurrpa
Price: $400.00 in Australia and Export.
PR806, 2004
Etching, edition size 20
25 x 33 cm
Jakamarra has depicted four of his most important Dreamings. They are Ngapa (Water), Pampardu (Flying Ant) Janganpa (Possum) and Ngalyipi (Snake Vine) The first Dreaming Ngapa comes from a place called Wapurtali, Mt. Singleton, west of Yuendumu. The short dashes represent clouds, the flowing lines flooded waters. This Ngapa Jukurrpa travelled to Mirrawarri, through Wapurtali. The Pamapardu story is in the middle of the painting. The pamapardu (Flying Ant) story is from Wilyiki (close to Mt Singleton). These flying ants get flushed out of their mingkirri (ant mounds) when it rains heavily. They sprout wings and fly off to find dry areas to rebuild their colonies The country associated with the Janganpa is Mawurrji, a water soakage created in the Dreamtime The possum was watching women as they were collecting food and water at Mawurrji. The curved lines are the tracks left by the possum's tail with the "E" shape foot prints (wirliya). The last story is of Ngalyipi or Snake Vine which is traditionally collected and made into rope.

Title: Ngalyipi Jukurrpa - Snake Vine Dreaming
Price: $420.00 in Australia and Export.
PR801, 2005
Screenprint, edition size 30
51 x 70 cm
This Jukurrpa comes from Mina Mina far to the west of Yuendumu. In the Dreaming women danced at Mina Mina and digging sticks rose up out of the ground. The women collected these up and travelled on, dancing and creating many places. The central motif of this work is Ngalyipi, or snake vine, a rope-like creeper used as a ceremonial wrap. The circles represent Jintiparnta, native truffle, which the women gathered for sustenance on their long journey which eventually took them beyond Warlpiri country.

Title: Majardi Jukurrpa - Ceremonial Dancing Skirt Dreaming
Price: $350.00 in Australia and Export.
PR802, 2009
Etchng, edition size 7
20 x 26 cm
This print of Majarrdi Jukurrpa (ceremonial dancing skirts) tells the story of an important element in much of Warlpiri ceremonial activity. ‘Majarrdi’ is a hair-string belt or skirt that ‘karnta’ (women) wear for ceremonial dances called Yawulyu. Hair is rolled into a string using a rubbing technique on the thigh and spun onto a stick spindle and then made into a belt or skirt. In the time of the Jukurrpa ancestral hero women were living at Mina-Mina, far to the west of Yuendumu. The women travelled over their country performing ceremonies and dances wearing their ‘majarrdi’.

Title: Mt Theo Jukurrpa
Price: $420.00 in Australia and Export.
PR803, 2003
Etching, edition size 8
20 x 37 cm
This print is about a story that takes place at Mount Theo (also known as Puturlu), north of Yuendumu. Two Napanangka women and two Napangardi women are looking for Ngalyipii (snake vine) which is used to make rope. This vine also has several other purposes. It could be used as a strap to carry parraja (food containers- also known as coolamons), as a tourniquet, or as a ceremonial rope when making witi poles. The wavy lines represent Ngalyipi and the circles depict Wapunungu (gum trees) that ngalyipi climbs around. The oval shapes depict parrajas. The Kanta (women) are shown as “U” shapes at the top and bottom of the image.

Darby Jampijinpa Ross
Title: Yarlukari Jukurrpa
Price: $500.00 in Australia and Export.
PR804, 2003
Screenprint, edition size 80
49 x 70 cm
The Jukurrpa story associated with Yarlukari (to the west of Yuendumu) tells of the emus who came from the east and travelled through Yarlukari to Mikanji. They were travelling through dry land until they reached Yarlukari. Darby has painted the emus dancing around the waterholes. The other concentric circles represent the many waterholes in the area. The Jampijinpa and Jangala Emu (Yankirri) Dreaming is a men’s story and much of it is private. Darby almost took two years to complete this complex screenprint which involved 12 separate sheets of acetate.

Title: Janganpa Jukurrpa - Possum Dreaming
Price: $420.00 in Australia and Export.
PR807, 2005
Screenprint, edition size 30
49 x 70 cm
The country associated with this painting is Mawurrjii, a water soakage created in the Dreamtime by a Janganpa (possum) ancestor. The concentric circles represent hollow trees, where the possums nested. The E-shapes represent the tracks left by the possums. Women with their digging sticks, hunt the possums as they leave their nests. Janganpa are nocturnal animals which travel at night in search of food and water. They are now rarely found in Central Australia, it is speculated as a result of the introduction of feral cats.

Title: Ngapa Jukurrpa - Water Dreaming
Price: $235.00 in Australia and Export.
PR809, 2011
Etching, edition size 40
9 x 15 cm
The country associated with this Ngapa Jukurrpa (water Dreaming) is Mikanji, a watercourse that is usually dry, west of Yuendumu. In this creek bed there are ‘mulju’ (soakages). The Dreaming travelled from Puyurru, northwest of Yuendumu to a ‘mulju’ in the Mikanji creek. By the side of the soakages two old blind women were sitting. A rain ancestor travelled to Mikanji from Puyurru and unleashed a huge storm. As the two women strained their eyes to see the sky, tears formed in their eyes, creating the rain. Their spirits can still be seen at Mikanji in the form of two ‘ngapiri’ (river red gums) growing near the soakage.
