Cushion Cover Wool 40cm (16in)
In this design Liddy Napanangka Walker is illustrating the story of Wakirlpirri Jukurrpa (Dogwood Tree Dreaming).
"Wakirlpirri" is a very useful tree that grows on the sides of creeks beds and near 'mulga' trees.nThe seeds of this tree can be eaten raw or cooked on the fire. A deliciously sweet drink called 'yinjirrpi' is made from the seeds when they have been dried. The wood can be used to make weapons such as 'Karl' (boomerangs) and dancing boards for ceremonies.
The pure wool is dyed in situ and the stitching is done by hand, the chain-stitch being a traditional Kashmiri handicraft.
