Munupi Giftboxed Art Silk Tie -  Jilamarra Design by Fiona Puruntatameri

100% Silk made in China under strict Licence agreement
Designed in Australia by royalty-paid Aboriginal Artists
Munupi Arts & Crafts Association is located along Melville Islands north-western coastline at Pirlangimpi (Garden Point) and is the most recently formed art centre on the Tiwi Islands (NT)

Tie Width = 9cm

The Tiwi word ‘Jilamara’, which roughly translates to ‘design’, refers to the intricate ochre patterning traditionally applied to the bodies of dancers and the surface of carved poles during the Pukamani funeral ceremony. This ceremony is still a part of community life and continues to inform the current art practice of the Tiwi people. Tiwi work displays its own regionally distinct identity, and varies greatly in form and content from the indigenous art of the Arnhem and Central Desert regions of Australia

Packaged on hanger + Bonus envelope for gift packaging.
Includes information about the artist and artwork.
