$135

The Wanakiji Jukurrpa (bush tomato [Solanum chippendalei) Dreaming) travels through Yaturlu (near Mount Theo, north of Yuendumu). "Wanakiji" grows in open spinifex country and is a small, prickly plant with purple flowers that bears green fleshy fruit with many small black seeds. After collecting the fruit the seeds are removed with a small wooden spoon called 'kaja la rra'. The fruit then can be eaten raw or threaded onto skewers called 'turlturrpa' and then cooked over a fire.
'Wanakiji' can also be skewered and left to dry. When they are prepared in this way it is called 'turlturrpa' and the fruit can be kept for a long time. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. The Wanakiji Jukurrpa belongs to Napanangka/Napangardi women and Japanangka/Japangardi men.
