Jezebel has painted Tjukurrpa passed on to her from her Grandfather Jimmy Tchooga. This painting depicts the objects and story associated with Jimmy’s Tjukurrpa (dreaming), given to Jimmy by his father. This story is set in Jimmy’s traditional country of Tjukukalyu, east of Balgo in the Tanami Desert. The central weaving lines represent Tjurrnu (soak water) at which karnti (bush potato) is found, whilst the patterning surrounding it depict the Tali (sandhills).
