Punu (the wood), the carvings of Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) have their beginnings in the Tjukurpa when the Creation Ancestors fashioned the first weapons and tools, setting down the laws and conventions of their design. Highly experienced craftsmen having grown up making traditional tools and weapons under the instruction of their fathers and grandfathers. The knowledge involved in this is inherited and passed on through the Tjukurpa or traditional Law. Inma or ceremony is one way in which this is done.
Timpilypa - small sticks that make a sound like a clap with...clap clap, listening closely then crafting them
Music sticks are traditional percussion instruments used by both men and women as musical accompaniment during ceremonies. They are crafted mainly by women and made from either eucalyptus or mulga wood and therefore highly resonant
