The art -
Maruku Arts is owned and operated by Anangu (Aboriginal people from the Western Desert and Central Desert regions of Australia). The name Maruku literally means "belonging to black" and it has operated for over 30 years as a non-for-profit art and craft corporation. Approximately 900 Anangu artists make up the collective that is Maruku. Its purpose is to keep culture strong and alive, for future generations of artists and make culture accessible in an authentic way to those seeking a more in-depth understanding. It also provides an important form of income to artists living in remote communities across Anangu lands.
The painting shown on this card is by Brenda James.
