Ngapa Jukurrpa III Blue Canvas Art Print - Inspired by the Water Dreaming, this incredibly intricate Aboriginal artwork features thousands of meticulously placed dots, culminating in a maze-like shape in a colour palette of black and white, with royal blue.
Available in different sizes & the option to add a solid timber shadow box frame. Comes pre-strung, ready to hang .
Stretched canvas fine art prints are professionally printed on polycotton artist canvas, using archival inks and then stretched and gallery wrapped. This means the image is stretched around a 38mm frame to create a seamless, museum-quality finish.
SHADOW BOX FRAMES
The canvas sits within the box frame with a 5mm gap, creating a sophisticated shadow effect between the frame and the canvas. The solid timber box frame mouldings are 10mm wide, and 55mm deep, and add approximately 40mm to the length and height of the listed canvas size.

This Aboriginal artwork depicts the water Dreaming, and tells a story of two Jangala men, rainmakers, who sang for the rain and unleashed a giant storm. The storm travelled from the east to the west until it reached Warlura, a waterhole to the east of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. At Warlura, a gecko blew the storm away. The storm continued on, covering the lands with rain and shooting out bolts of lightning, awakening the 'kurdukurdu mangkurdu Jukurrpa' (children of the clouds Dreaming). The water Dreaming built hills at Ngamangama, and stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka, where they can still be seen today in the Northern Territory as rock formations. The water Dreaming continued its travels to Mikanji, a watercourse northwest of Yuendumu, where the storm was picked up by a 'kirrkarlanji' (brown falcon) and taken farther north. At Puyurru, the falcon dug up a giant 'warnayarra' (rainbow serpent). The serpent carried water with it to create another large lake, before travelling on through other locations and eventually arriving at Gurindji country to the north.
In contemporary Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the 'Jukurrpa' (Dreaming). Short dashes are often used to represent 'mangkurdu' (cumulus & stratocumulus clouds), and longer, flowing lines represent 'ngawarra' (flood waters). Small circles are used to depict 'mulju' (soakages) and riverbeds. Be inspired by uniquely breathtaking Aboriginal Art and vibrant retellings of the Dreamtime, and bring this stunning artwork into your home today.

Regarding size, we recommend to measure your space with a tape measure and lay down some sheets/masking tape to try and gain some perspective on the most suitable size rug for your area.
Measurements may vary by 2-3%. Returning a rug due to such size variance is classified as a change of mind return and our terms & conditions apply. Returning a rug outside of our 30 day returns window due to incorrect size is not possible.
Photography is provided of the small area size rug (e.g. 230 x 160 cm) & runner (e.g. 80 x 300 cm). A larger size rug may accentuate a rug's pattern.
A transitional rug can have a faded & distressing look applied, which is often not symmetrical in pattern & colour, as this is part of their unique design. This can be accentuated in larger sizes.
Returns due to an accentuated pattern are classified as a change of mind return. A change of mind return is only valid within 30 days receipt of your shipment.
