Bush Banana – Yuparli Jukurrpa

This dreaming is about the Yuparli or bush banana plant that grows near Lajamanu. The fruit is green and a long oval shape. It is very sweet to eat. The bush bananas winds itselfs around the trees, first it has fluffy flowers before the fruit develops. The fruit forms and becomes round and then grows bigger and bigger.

About Elizabeth Nungarrayi Ross

Elizabeth worked at the school for many years in the bilingual education program, developing resources for teaching Warlpiri. She loved to learn and has taken several courses at Batchelor College over the years. Her culture was important to her and Nungarrayi really understood so much about it. She painted when she had spare time, then later after retirement spent a lot more time at the art centre painting.  Nungarrayi did ceremony and song all her life as well as teaching children.  She was a committed member of her church and Kurdiji Law Group. Her art was bold in dots depicting Jukurrpa or in lines again of Jukurrpa .  Another favourite subject of her art was birds including the spinnifex pigeon. Her favourite past time in retirement was painting.
