Bangle (71mm) - "Mina Mina Jukurrpa"
This design is owned by Judy Napangardi Watson from Warlukurlangu - Artists of Yuendumu.
A group of women of all ages travelled to the east gathering food, collecting 'ngalyipi' (snake vine) and performing ceremonies as they travelled. The wavy lives represent the snake vine, the 'u' shapes the women, the circular shapes are edible mushrooms the women collect on their travels and the two straight lines in the middle represent digging sticks.
