Janganpa Jukurrpa (brush-tail possum Dreaming) travels all over Warlpiri country. 'Janganpa' are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees. The story tells of 'janganpa' ancestors who would go out at night searching for food and water and the events which occured while travelling through the country. In this painting the 'janganpa' tracks are depicted by 'E' shapes and the concentric circles depict the trees in which they live.
