Cotton Tea Towel - "Two Dogs Dreaming"
This design is owned by Murdie Nampijinpa Morris.
Two dog ancestors, a Jampijinpa and a Napangardi, travelled from the west to the east. They dug holes in the ground and created 'warnirri' (rockholes) and 'ngapa' (waterholes) as they went. The two dogs seperated. Eventually Jampijinpa became lonely and howled for Napangardi in the south. She came running to him, and they married each other at Ngarnka.
