Ngurlu jukurrpa (native seed dreaming). Geraldine Napurrurla Nelson Galerie Gondwana
The Dream - Jukurrpa - is associated with a place called Jaralypari, located north of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory.
Lukarrara is a variety of «Fimbristylis», a grass that produces edible seeds during the winter. These seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone (puturlu) with a small stone taking perfectly in the hand (Ngalikirri). The flour produced is mixed with water (Ngap) to make cupcakes.

This dream is for women Nakamarra / Napurrurla and men Jakamarra / Jupurrurla.

Contemporary Warlpiri paintings incorporate traditional iconography such as on the canvas:
- The concentric circle size: important place in the occurrence Jaralypari
Points around this circle: seeds, Ngurlu.
