Celebrate the culture and identity of Aboriginal Australia with this lacquer Aboriginal art bangle designed by Mitjili Napurrula.
Mitjili paints the Watyia Tjuta tree. Her style is unique and recognisable. Mitjili Napurrula was taught her father’s dreaming by her mother. Her father’s country, Ulwalki, is where the trees are found that provide the wood for spear making.
Mitjili Napurrula is a Pintupi woman from the Haasts Bluff region, located 200km west of Alice Springs in Central Australia.
Mitjili’s works often depicts the country around Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji) in the Kintore Ranges in Central Australia. The iconography that Mitjili uses in many of her paintings represents the women’s side of the Jukurrpa story, showing the Watiya trees that provide the wood for spear shafts and other objects.
