PAINTING STORY
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 ‘kajalarra’. 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.

SOFT: Bamboo fibre is softer than the softest cotton, has a natural sheen to the surface and feels similar to silk or cashmere.

PROTECTIVE: Bamboo fibre clothing is naturally anti-microbial that requires no finish treatment with harmful chemicals. Bamboo apparel is comfortable, thermal regulating that will keep the body cooler, drier, warmer and odour free.

HYPOALLERGENIC: Bamboo's organic and natural properties make it non-irritating so perfect for extra sensitive skin, and it cuts out 98% of harmful UV rays.

The pattern may differ slightly from the image depending on the place where of the cloth to be cut out.
