This painting depicts the Marlu Jukurrpa (Red Kangaroo Dreaming) from the Mt Dennison area. ‘Marlu’ are highly valued as a food source by Warlpiri people.

In the story of this painting an old ancestral kangaroo named Warlawee, who made its camp at Jurnti and moved from place to place; huntng during the day and returning at night to the camp, which it formed by digging depressions in the soft ground.

Warlawee traveled around large areas of country looking for their preferred foods, which include ‘yukuri’ (fresh green growth) and ‘yulkardi’ (desert cucumber) a low-growing herb found underneath ‘mulga’ trees which is used by Warlpiri people for medicinal purposes.
