BWA Summer Scarf - Julie Woods
These gorgeous lightweight summer scarves from Better World Arts are made of soft viscose and are a very generous size, measuring 70cm x 200cm.
This design is based on artwork by Julie Woods. Julie is an artist from Papulankutja or Blackstone Community.
The painting 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.
