"Yeperenye" by Coral Hayes Pananka - REPRODUCTION PRINT

Coral has painted part of a story the Arrente people share of the rocky outcrops of Emily Gap, between the rocky ranges that hug Alice Springs Central Australia, that were formed by giant caterpillars. In traditional stories they entered this world through one of the gaps in the escarpment of the area. The Caterpillar ancestors, Yeperenye, Utnerrengatye and Ntyarlke are the Major Creators of the water, trees and country of Alice Springs. This Dreaming Story belongs to Corals’ Grandfathers who are the Three Green Caterpillars who are the Kings of this Dreaming Story. This totem has been handed down to Corals father and son through generations of Arrente men. Coral paints this beautiful painting for her father. It celebrates the sacred land, full of metallics, the vines representing natures gifts and the circles repeating as always in the circle of life, the center place where people meet around a space, representing the individual outwards in energetic and physical connections
