Wanakiji Jukurrpa (Bush Tomato Dreaming) by Lyn Nungarrayi Sims

The Wanakiji Jukurrpa (bush tomato Dreaming) travels through Yaturlu (near Mount Theo, north of Yuendumu). "Wanakiji" grows in open spinifex country and is a small, prickly plant with purple flowers that bears green fleshy fruit with many small black seeds. After collecting the fruit, the seeds are removed with a small wooden spoon called 'kajalarra'. The fruit then can be eaten raw or threaded onto skewers called 'turlturrpa' and then cooked over a fire. 'Wanakiji' can also be skewered and left to dry. When they are prepared in this way it is called 'turlturrpa' and the fruit can be kept for a long time. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. The Wanakiji Jukurrpa belongs to Napanangka/Napangardi women and Japanangka/Japangardi men.
