The artwork here of Murdie Morris depicts Two Dogs Dreaming' (Malikijarra Jukurrpa). The 'kind' (owners) of this Dreaming are Nampijinpa/Nangala women and Jampijinpa/Jangala men. This Dreaming comes from country adjacent to the windmill at 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.  In WArlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. The ribcages of the JAmpijinpa, Napangardi, and their family of dogs are depicted in this work. Their ribs can also be seen as features in the landscape in the Yankirrikirlangu area. Concentric circles are used to represent the 'ngapa' (waterholes) around Yankirrikirlangu.
