Rama Kaltu-Kaltu Sampson Rug


This stunning rug features art by Rama Kaltu-Kaltu Sampson. Rama is an Anangu elder, accomplished painter and a highly regarded traditional Ngangkari—doctor and spiritual healer. His art's primary Tjukurpa is Wanampi Tjukurpa, Rainbow Serpent Dreaming, shown through his bold colours and whimsical brushstrokes.

The beautiful, unique rug is a cross-cultural collaboration combining Rama's artistry with traditional Kashmiri rug-making techniques. Chain stitched, hand dyed wool is finished with a heavy cotton backing and non-slip pads, measuring 91cm by 152cm. The rug features an inconspicuous sleeve for a hanging rod, and can be hung on the wall as a feature piece if desired.

Rama is an artist with Better World Arts, who recognise that culture is strengthened when traditional skills and lifestyles are valued and supported, and people are enabled to stay in their own communities. Royalties from all Better World Arts products are returned to artists and their communities.
