This Dreaming belongs to the Nakamarra and Napurrurla women and the Jakamarra and Japurrurla men. The Dreaming is associated with a place called Jaralypari, to the north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara is a species of grass that bears edible seeds in the winter time. The seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone called Puturlu with a smaller stone called Ngalikirri to make flour. This flour is mixed with water to make small seed cakes. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. Large concentric circles are used to represent Jaralypari and dots surrounding these circles are often depicting the Ngurlu.
