Aussie Desert Dog - Junior
Junior loves life in Yuendumu and didn’t want to leave. We tried to send him to Brisbane for adoption but he was too sad and too determined to come back and live his life back in the community. Sadly he passed away of old age in February 2020. Each dog comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Warlukurlangu Artists have produced a selection of metal dogs for sale, each one based on a resident Yuendumu desert dog. After a template has been produced of a particular dog, inmates at Alice Springs prison then cut the shapes to size, varying from small, medium to large. The shapes are then collected and delivered to the art centre, where they are gently bent into standing pose, primed and finally individually hand painted by Warlukurlangu artists. Proceeds go to Aussie Desert Dogs an organisation run by Gloria Morales to care for the animals living in Yuendumu. You can read more about them at https://www.aussiedesertdogs.com/
