Story from the certificate of authenticity:
This Jukurrpa belongs to women of the Nakamarra/Napurrurla subsections and to Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men. This Dreaming is associated with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara (desert fringe-rush [Fimbristylis oxystachya & Fimbristylis eremophila]) is a grass with an edible seed. The seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone (ngatinyanu) with a smaller stone (ngalikirri) to make flour. This flour is mixed with water (ngapa) to make damper cakes which are cooked and eaten. In Warlpiri traditional paintings iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. Large concentric circles often represent the site of Jaralypari and also the seed bearing grass Lukurrara. U shapes can depict the Karnta (women) collecting lukarrara and straight lines are frequently used to portray seeds that fall down to the ground and are also collected by women using their parrajas (wooden food carriers) and karlangu (digging sticks).
