About the Artwork on this mug - Ngatijiri Jukurrpa (Green Budgerigar Dreaming)
The Ngatijirri Dreaming belongs to Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women and Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men. Ngatijirri (Melopsittacus undulatus) are small bright green budgerigars native to central Australia and common around the Yuendumu area. Men would hunt for Ngatijirri, robbing nests of eggs. Juvenile birds are considered a delicacy, as are the eggs. The men would go out hunting looking for Ngatijirri, swinging branches to kill the birds. This Jukurrpa site for Ngatijirri is Yangarnmpi south of Yuendumu. It travelled there from Patirlirri, near Willowra, and goes through to Marngangi, north/west of Mt Dennison. Each time the flock lands they perform ceremonies, singing and dancing. These sites are depicted as concentric circles. The arrow like shapes are the footprints of the birds on the ground.
