Details

Ngapa Jukurrpa I Canvas Art Print - Breathtakingly hypnotic and intricate, this Aboriginal artwork piece features countless songlines in curving lines, representing the many paths of the Termite Dreaming through the country. The colour palette is restrained, largely featuring white strokes and dots on a black background, and delicate pops of blue, red and mustard. Urban Road is committed to investing a stream of ongoing financial support back into the Yuendumu and Nyirripi artist community. For every Ngapa Jukurrpa I artwork sold, a percentage of the sale price goes directly back to the artist. This Aboriginal artwork depicts the water Dreaming, and tells a story of two Jangala men, rainmakers, who sang for the rain and unleashed a giant storm. The storm travelled from the east to the west until it reached Warlura, a waterhole to the east of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. At Warlura, a gecko blew the storm away. The storm continued on, covering the lands with rain and shooting out bolts of lightning, awakening the 'kurdukurdu mangkurdu Jukurrpa' (children of the clouds Dreaming). The water Dreaming built hills at Ngamangama, and stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka, where they can still be seen today in the Northern Territory as rock formations. The water Dreaming continued its travels to Mikanji, a watercourse northwest of Yuendumu, where the storm was picked up by a 'kirrkarlanji' (brown falcon) and taken farther north. At Puyurru, the falcon dug up a giant 'warnayarra' (rainbow serpent). The serpent carried water with it to create another large lake, before travelling on through other locations and eventually arriving at Gurindji country to the north. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the 'Jukurrpa' (Dreaming). Short dashes are often used to represent 'mangkurdu' (cumulus & stratocumulus clouds), and longer, flowing lines represent 'ngawarra' (flood waters). Small circles are used to depict 'mulju' (soakages) and riverbeds. Be inspired by uniquely breathtaking Aboriginal Art and vibrant retellings of the Dreamtime, and bring this stunning artwork into your home today. SHADOW BOX FRAMED CANVAS Urban Road's canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped before being box framed. Our box frame mouldings are 10mm wide, and 55mm deep, and add approximately 40mm to the length and height of the listed canvas size. All box framed art prints arrive ready to hang. - Frame Colour: black
