Mitjili Napurrula Cushion Cover
This striking cushion featuring art by Mitjili Napurrula is made from high quality wool and measures 40cm by 40cm.
Mitjili paints the Watiya Tjuta tree. Mitjili’s style is unique and recognisable. The Watiya Tjuta in Mitjili’s paintings is her father’s Tjukurrpa (dreaming) in Ilyingaungau country (Gibson Desert). This was passed down to her by her mother, Tjunkayi Napaltjareri when story telling, using the same to draw the story as it is told in the traditional way. She remembers “…After I got married, my mother taught me my father’s Tjukurrpa in the sand, that’s what I’m painting on the canvas”, a women’s interpretation.
Mitjili 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.
