Yukuwa is one of the artist’s name(s) and Yukuwa is the topic of this work. It is almost a self-portrait. This work is a reference to Yirritja renewal ceremony which is by definition a shared communion of Yirritja moiety clans which does not relate to circumcision or mortuary rites. Traditionally, the invitation to such a ceremony is presented as an object in the form of a yam with strings emanating from it with feathered flowers at the end.
