Silk scarf | Wilarra by Mulyatingki Marney | One of Twelve

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

Mulyatingki Marney, a Martu woman, was born to a Warnman mother and a Manyjiljarra father. Marney has worked on some of Martumili’s profoundly beautiful collaborative paintings, at times alongside her sisters. These works are powerful representations of the artists’ intimate knowledge of and enduring connection to Martu Country.

Wilarra is the word for moon in Manyjiljarra, and also the name of the site depicted in this work. A cluster of saltwater pools known for their healing properties are found at the site, and Martu people still frequent them to bathe cuts and sores. 

One of Twelve is an Australian organisation that showcases the work of emerging and established artists from the Asia Pacific region. They are dedicated to celebrating and contributing to the art sector of this region through the production of beautiful, wearable art in the form of vibrant, 100% silk ties. These ties a produced through working directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres, whose important, empowering work is essential to their communities.
