The Artwork Story
Ngapa Jukurrpa (Desert Rain Dreaming)
Resplendent in the glorious, sun-drenched colours of the Australian Outback, Bessie Nakamarra Sims’ original artwork reflects the unique beauty of the desert homelands of her Warlpiri ancestors and the Dreaming stories, which have been handed down to her through many generations over tens of thousands of years.
The original painting depicts the Dreamtime Story of how smoke rising from a fire formed a large storm cloud. A bird carried the storm cloud to the west where it fell to the ground as rain. Ngapa means water in the Warlpiri language.
