Yarla Jukurrpa / Bush Potato Dreaming, Cockatoo Creek
A 10% royalty on all sales is credited to the Artists
This Yarla Jukurrpa belongs to men of the Japaljarri/Jungarrayi subsections and to Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women. It comes from an area to the east of Yuendumu called Cockatoo Creek. Yarla/bush potatoes are fibrous tubers that grow beneath a low spreading plant, found by looking for cracks in the ground. This edible tuber grows from yartura/roots which seek out moisture to spout new plants. Yarla are good to eat. When cooked they are really soft and tasty. The Jukurrpa tells of yarla and wapirti/bush carrot ancestors fighting a big battle in this area. The specific site associated with this painting is a mulju/water soakage called Ngarparapunyu. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. The curved lines of the kuruwarri/ceremonial designs represent the ngamarna/vine-like tendrils from which grow jinjirla/flowers. Karlangu/digging sticks are usually represented as strait lines. Karlangu are used by women to dig for bush tucker like yarla and wapirti which are found underground.
Every piece is carefully crafted to order, offering you a diverse range of options. This approach aligns with our commitment to sustainability, as we eliminate excess stock and prioritize your unique preferences.
