The Culottes are an ideal wide-leg pant, consisting of intricately tailored front pleats and a darted and smooth finish through the back. They are the optimum width through the leg enabling drape, volume and comfort without compromising a neat and tailored aesthetic. The Culottes are an amazing high rise cut featuring a flattering tighter fitting waistband, invisible back zip and internal side pockets.
Puturlu Jukurrpa (Mt Theo Dreaming)
The Purlapurla Jukurrpa (black kite [Milvus migrans] Dreaming) is centred on the Kakurtu (Mount Dennison) area. This painting concerns a ‘purlapurla’ ancestral hero who lived there. ‘Purlapurla’ flies high in the sky like the ‘warlawurru’ (wedge-tailed eagle) and perches in the top of trees. The story relates an incident where he had injured his legs and was flying up and down. In paintings of this Jukurrpa often the hero is indicated by a vertical line or lines in the painting. The Purlapurla Jukurrpa belongs to the Nungarrayi/Napaljarri women and to the Jungarrayi/Japaljarri men.

"I paint my father Japangardi's Dreaming and my grandfather's Dreaming. Mt Theo is my father's country and that's what I’m painting the special Dreamings from. The Dreamings I paint are bush tomato, goanna....Goanna likes to fight and is a lover boy. And I paint seed pods and bush potato and hopping mouse. There are lots of stories...I paint strongly."
