SALA 2014 – Rain Songs by Justinna Sims Naparljari

Justinna comes from Yuendamu, NT and speaks the Walpiri language. Her artwork is highly sought after for it's dramatic black and white dot work depicting the day the big rains came and the associated songs..  The Mina Mina is a place west of Yuendumu, significant to her people who are the custodians of the dreaming that created the area.  It describes the journey of a group of selected women who traveled east gathering bush food, collecting Ngalyipi (snake vine) and performing ceremonies as they traveled.  She is the custodian of the iconography she creates and tells stories of the day the big rain came and the associated rain songs.
