Luritja and Kukatja people
Timmy Jugadai was actively involved in the Haasts Bluff community and was head stockman at the cattle station there from the 1950s. He was a friend and associate of many members of the original group of Papunya Tula painters. He painted occasionally for Papunya Tula Artists in the mid-1970s.
Travels of the Mala 1976
On its travels in the Dreaming, the Mala (Hare Wallaby) ancestor passed through a wide area of Central Australia. The painting shows the tracks of this fast-moving wallaby, indicating where it browsed (represented by a dragging tail mark) or made speedy progress. The circles are the spinifex grass tussocks under which it lives, and the arc-shaped protrusions are the Mala’s whiskers.
