The Artwork Story
Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Medicine Tree)
The stunning colours in this design by Geraldine Napangardi Granites reflect the unique beauty of the Australian Outback. Imagine the desert coming to life after the long-awaited rains. The intricate Dreamtime artwork design featured on the scarf is based on a traditional Warlpiri ceremonial decoration, which has been passed down to the artist through many generations of her ancestors over tens of thousands of years.
The Dreaming story is about a journey by a group of Warlpiri women who travelled across the desert gathering a vine called Ngalyipi. The Ngalyipi vine has long been used by the Warlpiri women for sacred ceremonies. The vine also has medicinal uses.
