Product Description

Leather Clutch w Wrist Strap-SRO633

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek bed are water soakages or naturally occurring wells. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. It travelled across the country, lightning striking the land. This storm met up with another storm from Wapurtali, to the west. It was picked up by a bird (Kilkilanji, a whistling kite) and carried further west until the load became too heavy for it to bear and it dropped that storm at Purlungyanu, where it created a giant soakage. At Puyurru the bird dug up a giant snake, Wanayarra, the snake carried water with it that created a giant lake, Jillyiumpa. There is an outstation there belonging to Shorty’s family. In this painting Shorty has used curvy lines or straight lines to represent the ngawarra (flood waters) running through the landscape, the small circles are mulju (water soakage), and the bars joining the long lines represent mangkurdu (clouds).
