Ngapa Jukurrpa – Rain Dreaming – Mungkarta

Rain dreaming or Ngapa Jukurrpa* is one of the major stories for the Warlpiri community living in Mungkarta.
The artists are often using traditional patterns, kuruwarri* to refer to the rituals that the elders used to practice for making the rain falls. Some of the elders are specialised in these rituals and are known as rainmakers.
In the traditional Warlpiri iconography, the U-shape often depicts man or woman sitting, the straight line is the digging stick or the spear and the concentric circles refer to waterholes. * in Warlpiri language
