Silk Scarf | Kampagee by Margaret Baragurra | One of Twelve

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

Margaret Baragurra was born in Kalpirti in the Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia. Her upbringing was spent travelling across the desert region, from waterholes to seasonal wetlands. In the 1970's a sustained drought forced her people, the Yulparija, to leave their traditional country and settle in the coastal town of Bidyadanga. The artist began painting in 2003 and is known for combining traditional designs from the Great Sandy Desert with the vibrant colours of the Kimberley.

In Kampagee a dark background is interrupted by bright forms of electric green dotting outlined in crimson red. For Margaret Baragurra, the image evokes powerful memories of her country in the wet season, when rich colours abound and there is an abundance of food.
