Malikijarra Jukurrpa (Two Dogs Dreaming

Malikijarra Jukurrpa (Two Dogs Dreaming) relates to the land adjacent to the windmill at Warlarlarla (Rabbit Flat). This painting retells the Dreaming of two dog ancestors, Jampijinpa and Napangardi, who travelled along a creek bed north-east to Yarikurlangu . When they arrived, Jampijinpa and Napangardi made a burrow to rest in and started a big family of dogs. The ribcages of the Jampijinpa, Napangardi and their family can seen as features in the landscape in the Yarikurlangu area, and have been depicted in this work. Surrounding these prominent symbols, Nampijipa has depicted several waterholes in the Yarikurlangu district. This Dreaming belongs to the Jangala, Nangala, Jampijinpa and Nampijinpa moieties, who are shown travelling along the watercourse.
