Rowena paints Lukarrara Jukurrpa or Desert Fringe Rush Seed Dreaming. This Dreaming belongs to the Nakamarra and Napurrurla women and the Jakamarra and Japurrurla men. The Dreaming is associated with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu Community in Central Australia. Lukarrara is a grass with edible seeds.

The seeds are ground down to make a flour, water is added and used to make damper cakes to be cooked and eaten. In traditional Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is often used to depict the story of women collecting and making the flour at Jaralypari. In this small painting a contemporary depiction is used showing the Lukarrara grass with its seeds.
