Murdie Nampijinpa Morris

(Maudie) Nampijinpa Morris was born in the 1930s in Rabbit Flat, a tiny settlement in the middle of the harsh Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory of Australia. She started painting for Warlukurlangu Artists in 2012 and paints her fathers dreaming, Maliki Jukurrpa (Domestic Dog Dreaming) and Malikijarra Jukurrpa (Two Dogs Dreaming). She uses an unrestricted palette to create a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.

Malikijarra Jukurrpa (Two Dogs Dreaming)

This painting depicts malikijarra Jukurrpa (two dogs Dreaming). The kirda (owners) of this Dreaming are Nampijinpa/Nangala women and Jampijinpa/Jangala men. In this Dreaming story, two dog ancestors, a Jampijinpa and a Napangardi, travelled from the west to the east. They began at Yarrajalpa (a waterhole) and travelled through to Waanjurna (a rockhole). At Tapu (a rockhole), the two dogs separated. The female dog, Napangardi, went to the south towards Ngamarnawarnu. The male dog, Jampijinpa, went to the north through Mukirri and Paruwu. Eventually he became lonely and howled for Napangardi in the south. She came running to him, and they married each other at Ngarnka. The dogs then continued east, past Jarramarda and Yankirrikirlangu, before arriving in Warlaku (Ali Curung). Many other dogs were living in Warlaku when they arrived. Jampijinpa and Napangardi made a burrow to rest in and started a big family of dogs there.
