Artwork Story

Senior Warlpiri custodian Judy Napangardi Watson has lived much of her life close to her ancestral country, north-west of Yuendumu. ‘I paint to share my culture, my country, my story. Working at Warlukurlangu Art Centre gives me a chance to be busy and to earn money for my family. I am proud and happy to support them with my painting.’ Mina Mina is an important ceremonial place belonging to Napanangka/ Napangardi women and Japanangka/ Japangardi men. Judy’s work captures the landscape and significant sites created by the procession of ancestral women as they travelled on an epic journey. The sacred Nngalyipi, a vine used for healing and initiation ceremonies, and the majarrdi, fringed ceremonial dancing skirts, are represented.
