About Artist/Artwork

Tutuni is a new and unique Tiwi design in striking red and black. This signature style is deeply embedded in Tiwi artist, Tictac Moore.

The home of the Tiwi people consists of two main islands, Bathurst Island and Melville Island. They are located in the Timor Sea just north of Darwin. The Tiwi Islands are separated from the Australian mainland by the Apsley Strait. The Tiwi Islands has a rich culture where art plays a very important role. 

The name for the design is 'Tutuni' which means spear in Tiwi. Tictac has replicated the spear in a photo of her Grandpa, Allie Miller Mungatopi to design this mat. Everything Tictac knows of her Grandpa has been passed down through stories, and most of the photos she holds of him have come from books. In one of those books, there is a photo of him standing holding a spear, painted up and dressed ready for a ceremony. It is this spear she has used for the design. 

In the centre of the mat, you will also see Tictac's representation of the sun, which is her skin group. This symbol is iconic for her and features in most of her art.

Made with recycled plastic, this Tiwi Aboriginal design mat is waterproof, easy to clean and UV treated. It is a perfect way to celebrate diversity on outdoor gatherings and while camping. The closely woven weave creates a soft and comfortable surface to sit or lay on whilst on grass, sand, soil or concrete. 

This intricate and geometric design is perfect for a teaching tool to open conversation about culture, family and community, and how we fit into this bigger picture. Extend cultural learning with one of our fun multicultural games that can be used during your gatherings.

NB: comes in a recycled and reusable plastic carry bag
