Silk scarf | Parnngurr area by Jakayu Biljabu | One of Twelve
This stunning 100% Silk Scarf features the artwork Parnngurr Area by Jakayu Biljabu. A perfect gift of wearable art to adorn your neck, upstyle your hair, or hang on the wall in that special space.
Jakayu Biljabu, a Martu woman, was born circa 1936 near the site of Pitu, east of Well 25 on the Canning Stock Route. Employing a startling array of colour, Biljabu’s work often depicts crucial water sources, along with sandhills and other landforms, comprising an atlas of her traditional Country. Testament to Biljabu’s intimate knowledge of this Country, her paintings hum with the vital energy of shimmering oases and moving desert sands.
The electrifying work Parnngurr Area relates to the landscape surrounding the Martu community of Parnngurr in the Eastern Pilbara. Significant sites Yalpu, Wangkakarlu, Parnkurrl and Kurran Kurran are depicted – water sources that were crucial to the survival of Biljabu and her family during pujiman.
