The Artwork Story
Ngapa Jukurrpa (Rain Bird Dreaming)
Resplendent in the glorious, sun-drenched colours of the Australian Outback, Vivienne Nakamarra Kelly’s original artwork depicts a traditional Water Dreaming story, “Ngapa Jukurrpa”, which was handed down to her through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors over tens of thousands of years.
The Water Dreaming story is about how smoke from a fire rose into the sky and formed a large storm cloud. A bird picked up the storm on its wings and carried it over the desert country. When the storm became too heavy for the bird to carry, it fell to the ground as rain.
