Explications sur cette peinture Aborigène :

Jimmy and Angie have painted Warlu Tjukurrpa (Fire Dreaming) in Western Yarra, around the Tanami Downs

area of the Tanami Desert. It was given to Jimmy by his father. As a senior Law man, it is the same pain􀆟ng

that Jimmy paints on men for ceremonial dancing and young male members of his family when they go out

hun􀆟ng.

The warlu (fire) spontaneously started in the area where the yellow concentric circles are and travelled

across the country crossing many sacred sites (all the other circles). Flames are depicted as the black lines

emana􀆟ng from the central circles and are heading from north to south in the direc􀆟on of the Karn􀆟

Tjukurrpa (bush potato Dreaming). Karn􀆟 is bush potato which is collected in the cold months a􀅌er fire has

cleared the ground making the telling cracks in the ground visible which mark the loca􀆟on of the potatoes.

The fire stopped in Pupari, the lines represent the burnt areas.
