This 'Jukurrpa' (Dreaming) comes from Mina Mina, a very important women's Dreaming site far to the west of Yuendumu near Lake Mackay and the WA border. The 'kirda' (owners) of this Dreaming are Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men; the area is sacred to Napangardi and Napanangka women. There are a number of 'mulju' (water soakages) and a 'maluri' (clay pan) at Mina Mina.
In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. In many paintings of this Jukurrpa, sinuous lines are used to represent the 'ngalyipi' (snake vine). Concentric circles are often used to represent the 'jintiparnta' (desert truffles) that the women have collected, while straight lines can be used to depict the 'karlangu' (digging sticks).
