About the Artwork

Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming)

Pikilyi is a large and important waterhole and natural spring near Mount Doreen Station in Central Australia. Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming) tells of the home of two rainbow serpents, ancestral heroes who lived together as man and wife. The woman 'rainbow serpent' was of the Napanangka skin group, the man was a Japangardi. This is a taboo relationship contrary to Warlpiri religious law. Women of the Napanangka and Napangardi subsection sat by the two serpents, picking lice from them. For this service, the two serpents allowed the women to take water from the springs at Pikilyi. This was because the serpent were the 'Kirda', or ceremonial owners, for that country. The spirits of these two rainbow serpents are still at Pikilyi today.
