The Storm Bird design is based on an original painting by highly esteemed Warlpiri Aboriginal artist, Christine Nakamarra Curtis, and depicts a traditional Dreaming story called Ngapa Jukurrpa. The story was handed down to the artist through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors over tens of thousands of years. The Ngapa Jukurrka (Water Dreaming) story tells of how smoke rising from a fire formed a large storm cloud. A bird carried the storm over the desert where it fell as rain.

 

The artist, Christine Nakamarra Curtis was born into a family of artists. She is one of seven sisters. Christine began painting in 2007 with the world acclaimed Warlukurlangu Artists, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in the former mission community of Yuendumu.
