Better World Aboriginal Art Lacquered 71mm Bangle (4cm wide) - Two Sisters by Julie Woods

Size:  71cm - 4cm wide
Handcrafted paper-mache

CROSS CULTURAL PROJECT - Kar-e-Kalamdani is the local name for paper mache - a a Kashmiri cottage industry introduced to the Karmir Valley in 15th century.  There are many steps in the process - creating pulp from recycled paper - molding and finishing the shapes - handpainting and varnishing

Julie is telling the story of two sisters travelling through her mother’s country towards Docker River, Northern Territory. They stopped at Ilkuwaratjara and cut a wana (digging sIck). The punu (wood) was really straight. The little sister was gettng homesick, but the big sister said; “No, I am taking you to meet your family.” Along the way they were digging for kuka (meat such as goanna) and Niny (Bilby). They got kuka and they were happy to have a good feed. The ‘U’ shapes are the sisters. Next to them are their wana or digging sick. The circles represent rock or water holes where water collects after the rains.
