This Dreaming belongs to Napaljarri / Japaljarri and Nungarrayi / Jungarrayi subsections and people from Mt Theo of the Japanangka / Napanangka, Japangardi /Napangardi subsections. It comes from Yarripurlangu, south-west of Yuendumu and tells the story of a group of Karnta (Warlpiri women) who were sitting down in a circle. A man from Mt Theo, of the Japangardi skin group named Wamaru came up to them. He wanted to take Yurlkurinyi, a girl of the wrong skin, a Nungarrayi. They made love. Then the earth turned to Ngunjungunju (yellow and white ochre) and the man turned himself and all the women into wardapi / goannas. The ochre is still found on top of the hill and is used today for love magic and for ceremonial decoration. In paintings of this Jukurrpa, the group of women is often represented by concentric circles and U shapes typically represent women. Concentric circles can also illustrate wardapi / holes and the droppings they leave while wardapi tracks are usually represented by W shapes.
