About this artwork

This country is located at Old Texas Station, east of Warmun community. This Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) is about marranji (the dingo) and jiyirriny (the kangaroo). Marranji told Jiyirriny ‘your country is on that side’. Then Marranji turned into Mooloogurrl (the wild dog). Barndarl (the sun) told the dog and the kangaroo to both stay in their own country or they would be burned. The ding’s country is represented by the green, the kangaroo’s by the red-brown. The sun is the area of grey.
