Kurrih was the name of a man living in the area known as Mangardubu (cooper's Creek) during the Dreamtime. The man was Nawamud "skin". He was making a kundjabarrk (a traditional multi-purpose 'dilly bag') from pandanus fibre when he looked back and saw that men were hunting him.
The men were carrying spears and spear throwers. To hide, he climbed into the dilly bag that he was making and in doing so, he became kurrih (a blue-tongued lizard - mirndarl or kurrih in Kunwinjku). This story explains why the blue-tongued lizard has skin that resembles the texture of a dilly bag.
Kurrih is depicted here in human form with his dilly bag and hunting tools.
