Rama Sampson Rug

Product Information

Size: 150cm x 90cm

Rama’s image illustrates the Wanampi Tjukurpa - Rainbow Serpent Dreaming. This is a very important Tjukurpa story, where the snakes represent men. Rama says there is one Wanampi tjilpi – he is the rainbow serpent, his name is Kuntjanu. There are other people there, kuniya, mingkiri, and liru. The Kuniya is a big python with a black back and yellow front. Mingkiri are the mouse people, and liru are the snake people. Liru wati wakanu Wanampi, Wanampi pakanu ngarangu, the snake men speared Wanampi for nothing, he rose out of the waterhole and was speared, but he is still alive, in the waterhole.

The image for this rug is taken from an original painting. Rama's birthplace is laced with stories of the ancestral beings who created the landmarks and played vital roles in the law giving stories. Ngayuku ngura means My Place and is used by Anangu to refer to the place where their bodies first touched the ground.
