Gurtha 48BB

The Gurtha (fire) is called Liltji or Lirrwi. After the fire has burned down just the black ash is left. The name of the ashes left behind after the cooking fire dies is Gikawarra.

Barrupu Yunupingu always paints the designs of her Father – Munggurrawuy Yunupingu – exactly how she remembers him doing it. Her individual signature style has however developed since 2007 and earned her the support from the art centre where, together with her sister Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, she comes to paint everyday since 2008. Barrupu is a daughter of Munggurrawuy. Her siblings include Australians of the Year, Galarrwuy and Mandawuy as well as Gulumbu Yunupingu who is a Telstra First Prize Winner. Her closest sister is Nyapanyapa with whom she has worked as a print artist through Buku-Larrnggay Mulka since 1996.
