Story from the certificate of authenticity:
The country associated with this Ngapa Jukurrpa (water Dreaming) is Mikanji, a watercourse that is usually dry, west of Yuendumu. In this creek bed there are 'mulju' (soakages). The custodians of this jukurrpa are men of the Jangala/Jampijinpa skin groups, and women of the Nangala/Nampijinpa skin groups. The Dreaming travelled from Puyurru, northwest of Yuendumu to a 'mulju' in the Mikanji creek. By the side of the soakages two old blind women of the Nampijinpa skin group were sitting. A rain ancestor travelled to Mikanji from Puyurru and unleashed a huge storm. as the two women strained their eyes to see the sky, tears formed in their eyes, creating the rain.Their spirits can still be seen at Mikanji in the form of two 'ngapiri' (river red gums) growing near the soakage. Motifs frequently used to depict this story include concentric circles representing 'mulju' (water soakages) and short bars depicting 'mangkurdu' ( cumulus & stratocumulus clouds).
