Regular price $99.00

A lovingly handcrafted and fun cross-body bag made with a beautiful original screen-print by Aboriginal artist Mitjili Napurrula from Ikuntji Artists (hand printed by Publisher Textiles) 

In this design Mitjili Napurrula depicts her fathers Tjukurrpa, the ceremonial spear straightening in Uwalkari country (Gibson desert region). The Watiya Tjuta (Acacia Trees) are the trees that are used to make these spears. Uwalkari country is abundant with Watiya Tjuta, as well as sand hills and other plants. Mitjili paints the motif of the Watiya Tjuta, carrying on the recurring motif as her mother used to draw in the sand. Her mother passed on this Dreaming to her.

Adorned with a quality metal zipper.

Hand-cut removable leather strap, 122 cms.  Banner lining.

(The placement of the print can vary slightly from bag to bag)
