Malikijarra Jukurrpa II Canvas Art Print - This warm, earthy and mesmerising Aboriginal artwork tells the story of the two dogs Dreaming - a story sacred to the Warlpiri tradition. Featuring a winding maze of lines, circles and branches, the artwork is a beautiful representation of a long journey through rockholes and waterholes, in a grounded brown and yellow colour palette.

 

This Aboriginal artwork tells the story of the two dogs Dreaming. The site for this Dreaming makes up a part of a long Dreaming track stretching from one end of the Warlpiri country to the other, and sits adjacent to the windmill at Rabbit Flat in the Northern Territory. This Dreaming is very important to its owners, as it tells the story of proper conduct in families and marriages. This Dreaming tells the story of two dog ancestors, a male, Jampinjinpa, and a female, Napangardi,, who were travelling across the Warlpiri country from the west to the east. Beginning their journey at Yarrajalpa, a waterhole, they travelled through country, digging holes in the ground and creating ‘warnirri’ (rockholes) and ‘ngapa’ (waterholes) as they went.

The two dogs separated at Tapu, with the female dog, Napangardi, heading south, and the male dog, Jampijinpa, heading north. Eventually Jampijinpa became lonely, and howled for Napangardi in the south. She came running to him, and they married each other at Ngarnka. They wore men’s and women’s marriage headdresses, and Jampijinpa painted himself with white clay for the ceremony. After they were married, they continued their journey together, moving slowly to the east, eventually reaching Warlaku (Ali Curung), where many other dogs were living. There were families – mothers, fathers, children and uncles all living together. Jampijinpa and Napangardi made a burrow for themselves to rest in, and started their own big family of dogs, choosing to stay and live amongst the other families in Warlaku.

Bring the richness of Aboriginal culture and timeless storytelling traditions into your home with this intricately painted and breathtaking artwork.

STRETCHED CANVAS

Urban Road's stretched canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped. This means the image is stretched around a 38mm frame to create a seamless, museum-quality finish. All stretched and box framed art prints arrive ready to hang.

SHADOW BOX FRAMES

We also offer the option to add a shadow box frame to your Urban Road canvas art print. A little different from a traditional framed print, the canvas sits within the box frame with a 5mm gap, creating a sophisticated shadow effect between the frame and the canvas. Our solid timber box frame mouldings are 10mm wide, and 55mm deep, and add approximately 40mm to the length and height of the listed canvas size.

ROLLED CANVAS ART

At Urban Road, we also offer you the option to purchase your canvas art print unframed to allow you to have it framed your own way. As with our stretched and box framed canvas products, our rolled canvas prints are professionally printed on durable, museum-quality, matte coated polycotton canvas and made to order. Our rolled canvas products are printed to the listed stretched size, and come with an additional 45mm mirrored edge plus another 60mm white border to allow for gallery wrapping.
