Janganpa Jukurrpa (Possum Dreaming)

This Dreaming belongs to Japaljarri and Jungarrayi men. The site for this Dreaming is Yampirringi, east of Yuendumu. One possum was a lover boy for a possum woman from Warkaningi. He travelled from Yampiiringi to Warkaningi to take that woman. In this print the possum is represented thorughout. The ‘ E’ shapes are the possum footprints and sinuous lines are the imprint left by the possum’s tail in the sand.
