This stunning 100% Silk Scarf features the artwork Minyipuru 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.
In Minyipuru Jukurrpa (Seven Sisters Story) the viewer is transported into the desert Country traversed by seven sisters as they are chased by a lustful old man.
