Artist statement

Agnes Nampijinpa Fry has painted this sculpture with her Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming). The country associated with this Ngapa Jukurrpa is Mikanji, a watercourse west of Yuendumu that is usually dry. There are mulju (soakages) in this creek bed. The kirda (owners) of this Dreaming site are Nangala/Nampijinpa women and Jangala/Jampijinpa men. Mikanji is an important Water Dreaming site, and features in at least three different Water Dreaming tracks.
