This vibrant Australian Made cotton drawstring bag features artwork by Murdie Morris from Warlukurlangu Artists.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia.
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.
Each tote bag is a little unique as print placement varies (front and back) and may vary from image shown.
Dimensions: 30cm x 45cm (approx).
