Watson Robertson Mug
Fine bone china mug featuring artwork designed by Watson Jangala Robertson. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Mug height 12.5 cm.
Watson Jangala Robertson is a Warlukurlangu artist from Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community located 290km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. Watson was born into a family of established Warlpiri artists—who would take him out bush, around Nyirripi and Yuendumu, showing him sites and teaching him the traditional ways of his country.
He began painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu and Nyirripi, in 2016. He paints his Mother’s Watiya-warnu Jukurrpa (Seed Dreaming) and his grandfather’s Ngapa Jukurrpa – Puyurru (Water Dreaming), stories passed down to him through the many generations. These stories are creation stories that relate to his family’s traditional country.
