The Artwork Story

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.

Artist details

Christine Nakamarra Curtis

Christine was born into a family of artists and spent most of her childhood at a very remote outstation community called Nyirripi located in the desert country of Central Australia. Christine is one of seven sisters. Nyirripi is located about 150km south west of the Aboriginal community of Yuendumu. Yuendumu is the home of the internationally acclaimed Warlukurlangu Aboriginal Artists Corporation. Yuendumu lies around 300 km northwest of Alice Springs in the vast Tanami Desert region and has a population of about 800. The community is located within the traditional homelands of the Warlpiri Aboriginal people and includes numerous outstations.

Christine began painting with the Warlukurlangu Artists in 2007. Warlukurlangu supports Warlpiri artists to preserve their cultural heritage and to earn income from their work. Christine paints her grandparent’s Dreaming on her mother’s side. The Dreaming stories depicted by Christine relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. These sacred stories have been passed down through many generations of her ancestors over thousands of years.

“I like the patterns and all those colours, and the stories. Watching family painting, they show you the Dreaming.”
