Mina Mina Jukurrpa Canvas Art Print
- Unit Price
This Indigenous Aboriginal artwork depicts the story of the women that danced in celebrations of the 'mulju' (Summer rains) at the Mina Mina, a very important women's Dreaming site in the Northern Territory of Australia, while collecting 'karlangu' (digging sticks).
Their journey took them to far lands across the Northern Territory - from the west to the east of Yuendumu - creating many places as they went, while dancing, digging and collecting many ceremonial elements, such as 'parraja' carrying vessels made from 'ngalyipi', the snake vine that grows on the desert oak tree known as 'kurrkara'. The Napangardi women embraced the opportunity to be with one another, and when they stopped, they delighted in bush tucker from the area, like the delicious desert truffle 'jintiparnta'. The Dreaming track eventually took them far beyond Warlpiri country, into Queensland.
In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. In many paintings of this Jukurrpa, sinuous lines are used to represent the 'ngalyipi' (snake vine). Concentric circles are often used to represent the 'jintiparnta' (desert truffles) that the women have collected, while straight lines can be used to depict the 'karlangu' (digging sticks).

Our stretched canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped. This means the image is stretched around a 38mm frame to create a seamless, museum-quality finish. All stretched and box framed art prints arrive ready to hang.
SHADOW BOX FRAMES
We also offer the option to add a shadow box frame to your canvas art print. A little different from a traditional framed print, the canvas sits within the box frame with a 5mm gap, creating a sophisticated shadow effect between the frame and the canvas. Our solid timber box frame mouldings are 10mm wide, and 55mm deep, and add approximately 40mm to the length and height of the listed canvas size.
