Wedge Tailed Eagle Dreaming – Glorine Nungarrayi Martin

The Warlawurru Jukurrpa (wedge-tailed eagle dreaming) belongs to two places called Wakurlpa and Yuwarli, both north of Yuendumu. At Yuwarli, the site, shown here, a Warlawurru made a ‘mina’ (nest) in a tree and laid two ‘ngipiri’ (eggs).
From here, the ‘warlawurru’ would fly around searching for prey, up to the size of young kangaroos and emus.
This Jukurrpa is an important part of the initiation ceremonies for young men of the Japaljarri and Jungarrayi subsection.
In contemporary Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. In paintings depicting this Dreaming, ‘warlawurru’ nests are typically represented by concentric circles and their ‘ngipiri’ and ‘wirliya’ (tracks) are often shown as graphic representations of those elements.

NB: These items are all hand made and as such may have slight variations from the pictured items. This is normal and inherent with Hand Made clothing.
