Scarf | Silk | Untitled by Yalti Napangati | One of Twelve

This stunning 100% Silk Scarf features the artwork Untitled by Yalti Napangati.  A perfect gift of wearable art to adorn your neck, upstyle your hair, or hang on the wall in that special space.

Yalti Napangati's untitled work refers to the site Marrapinti, a rockhole and soakage water site, west of Kiwirrkura in Western Australia. During ancestral times, a large group of women gathered at this site on their travels to the east. The women stopped at Marrapinti to make nose bones, also known as marrapinti, which are worn through a hole in the septum. These ornamental nose bones were originally worn by men and women but are now only inserted by the older generations during ceremonial occasions. At the conclusion of the ceremony at Marrapinti, the women continued their travels east to Ngaminya and then on to Wilkinkarra (Lake MacKay).

One of Twelve is an Australian organisation that showcases the work of emerging and established artists from the Asia Pacific region. These scarves are produced through working directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres, whose important, empowering work is essential to their communities. Every artist that collaborates with the organisation receives royalties from your purchase.
