Dany The Dingo

 

Danny is a Dingo and as a baby he was found in Borroloola. He had a severe injury to his right eye was taken to Darwin and then to live in Yuendumu where his eye has improved with several operations completed by the visiting vet. He is a happy boy that enjoys being free in the community

Dogs in Warlpiri are called  ‘Jarntu’ or ‘maliki’. Families in Yuendumu tend to own many dogs. They are good ‘marlpa’ (company). Many people think of their dogs as ‘warlalja’ (family). Dogs in Yuendumu like to follow their owners around whenever they can.

Some people use their dogs to help them hunt ‘marlu’ (kangaroo) and ‘wardapi’ (goanna), among other animals. People also have dogs to protect themselves from intruders, monsters, and other things that might try to hurt them and their family. Many monsters are invisible to ‘yapa’ (Aboriginal people). However, dogs are able to see and smell them. Dogs will warn ‘yapa’ about them or steer them away from the monsters, and thereby keep them safe.

‘Jarntu’ or ‘maliki’ also feature in a number of ‘Jukurrpa’ (Dreaming) stories. One ‘maliki Jukurrpa’ (dog Dreaming) comes from a site called Pindara, southwest of Yuendumu. Another dog Dreaming story, ‘malikijarra Jukurrpa’ (two dogs Dreaming), comes from country adjacent to Warlarla (Rabbit Flat). This site is part of a long Dreaming track that stretches from Yarrajalpa in the extreme west of Warlpiri country to Warlaku (Ali Curung) in the east. This Dreaming story describes proper conduct in families and marriages.

A wonderful thank you gift for corporate events or a special birthday gift.

As this is a unique one of a kind hand painted item the artwork and textures of the sculpture also have their individual characteristics and the photo imagery will not always pick up on these.
