Rosie Nangala Fleming Kurlkurra & Ngapa Jukurrpa 5/100 2017
Limited edition, handmade chainstitch rug ,designed by Aboriginal artists on a heavy cotton backing
1220 x 1830mm

$730 Rosie has depicted kurlkura trees in her country, Warlukurlangu, south of Yuendumu. The trees are shown in flower. The country offers a big water soakage (Ngapa) and is a place of rest for Nampijinpa/Jampijinpa/Nangala/Jangala skin groups.

These beautiful, unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Kashmiri rug- making techniques. Chain stitched, using hand dyed wool and finished with a heavy cotton backing, each rug is a completely handmade piece. This project is unusual because the rug is owned by the artist, rather than licensed to a third party. A more empowering way to work, this brings many direct benefits to the artists' and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained. Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the aboriginal artist and their community.
