Artwork by Warlukurlangu artist, Chantelle Nampijinpa Robertson.

The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are 'mulju' (soakages), or naturally occurring wells. The 'kirda' (owners) for this site are Nangala/Nampijinpa women and Jangala/Jampijinpa men. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. The storm travelled across the country from the east to the west, initially travelling with a ' pamapardu Jukurrpa' (termite Dreaming) from Warntungurru to Warlura, a waterhole 8 miles east of Yuendumu. At Warlura, a gecko called Yumariyumari blew the storm onto Lapurrukurra and Wilpiri. Bolts of lightning shot out to Wirnpa (also called-Mardinymardininypa) and at Kanaralji. At this point, the Dreaming track also includes the 'kurdukurdu mangkurdu Jukurrpa' (children of the clouds Dreaming). The water Dreaming built hills at Ngamangama using baby clouds and stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka, where they can still be seen today as rock formations.
