Tea Towel | Sweet Tjala (Honey Ant) | Black on White Linen | Tangentyere Artists

This vibrant Sweet Tjala linen tea towel is designed by Patricia Robinson of Tangentyere Artists and wholly produced in Australia. Tjala is the Pintupi Pitjantjatjara word for honey ant. Honey ants live in deep underground nests and it requires a lot of skill to collect them. You eat the ant by holding its body and popping the abdomen filled with honey-like syrup into your mouth.
