Warakurna Artists

Print - Myra Yurtiwa Cooke - 357-10


Myra Cook was born at a special place called Kartjinguku, a creek situated near Warakurna. This work depicts a story fromMyra's mother's country called Lirrun. A young snake man came from the South of Pukarra. The man had been trying to steal a young girl to become his wife. She called all the feather- foot men and they chased him away to Pukarra. The marks in this work show the feather-foot men chasing the serpent snake man through country.

Warakurna is a community situated on the Great Central Road in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia. Warakurna has a long history of artistic expression. In March 2005 the Art Centre studio was opened, and is fully owned and governed by Aboriginal people, providing services to artists living and visiting Warakurna and the nearby community of Warakurna.

The Art Centre plays an important role in the community, providing cultural an social benefits in addition to economic returns. Warakurna Artists facilitates the production, distribution and sale of the artist' artwork. The paintings are vibrant and diverse, reflecting each artist's unique style stories and connection to the country. All proceeds are returned to the artists and their organisation.
