Ikuntji Artists

Margaret Brown (Nangala) - Yumari


This painting depicts the Yumari Tjurrkpa. This tjukurrpa was passed down from her father, from her grandfathers line and countryYumari country is located west of Kintore, in the Gibson Desert. Margaret paints the tali (sandhills), puli (rocks) and kapi (rockholes) that make up the country. In the early days Nampitjinpa and Jampitjinpa women and men would travel there from surrounding areas to meet, camp and do ceremony as well as eat and drink the variety of flora and fauna in the lush area. Around the rockholes women and men sing and dance. Camels, blue tongue lizards, goannas, emus, kangaroos, bush turkeys and other tucker are abundant. In Yumari, there is always water and greenery, though it is forbidden to swim there. This water is only for drinking and sharing

Women and men continue travelling today to Yumari in Toyotas to camp, meet and hunt. Grandmothers make wanganu (damperon the big fire and men hunt with kulata (spear) and kali (boomerang). Now people come from all around, white fellas too, to see the water.
