This dreaming tells about the special seeds we use for grinding and making powder. The women add water to make a special damper. They put the damper in the coals for cooking. There are many different seeds we collect.
Jinjingarli is the older sister of Rosie Tasman. They paint together in Lajamanu. Jinjingarli is a tiny lady full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the paintings she creates. She is a caring dedicated lady who drew up in the Tanami Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she has endured has caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold linework and dots. Jinjingarli is a hard working and busy lady.
Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and family is born out in the art she creates. This art has been widely exhibited in Australia and overseas. She was a finalist in the 2010 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards. Major Collections: National Gallery of Victoria and Artbank.
