    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Originally from Yuendumu in the Central Desert, Natasha Oldfield NAKAMARRA here evokes the Dream (Jukurrpa) of the Serpent (Warna) linked to the sacred site of Ngama, located to the south of her community.

    As this dream has sacred value, artists like Natasha Oldfield only give us the version instilled in children. The one given to us combines multiple legends - or tracks of dreams - that intersect during the journeys undertaken by different ancestors. The main hero of the story told by this canvas is Yarrilpi, the ancestor serpent, who traveled across Australia to reunite with his family when he was disabled. He was transported throughout his journey by the “kurdungurlu”, the one responsible for enforcing the laws taught in dreams. Every time its tail curled up and touched the ground, swamps appeared.

    This very important dream explains how the multiple marshes on which the survival of the desert peoples depend were created and above all gives spatial landmarks to find them according to the dunes, rocky promontories, etc.

    The zig zag dotted lines that separate the canvas in two represent, seen from the sky, the traces left by the snake. The concentric circles in the background of the canvas symbolize sacred sites mentioned in the dream which are mostly water points. The darker circles probably represent the flower receptacles covered with their seeds.
