This 100% silk scarf features a vibrant design based on artwork by Murdie Morris. Packaged in a presentation giftbox featuring information about the artist and artwork. Artwork placement will vary from scarf to scarf so each one is a little bit different.

Murdie Morris was born around 1934 at Rabbit Flat on the Tanami Track. She grew up in the bush around Tanami Downs and lived a traditional lifestyle until the time her father worked on the Granites Goldfields. She is also a senior custodian and traditional owner of this land.

Her paintings represent the Maliki, or wild dog dreaming. It tells the story of the Wild Dogs in Murdie's home country of Lajamanu. They travel from camp to camp looking for food that they can steal from the people. The people of the camp can see where the dogs leave their tracks in the sand and people will often find the left over bones as well. This is an important story and belongs to the Namitjinpa/Tjampitjinpa and Nangala/Tjangala skin groups.
