One Of Twelve Minyipuru Silk Scarf - Jakaya Biljabu
In this work, Jakayu Biljabu transports the viewer into the desert Country traversed by seven sisters as they are chased by a lustful old man.
The epic Minyipuru Jukurrpa (Seven Sisters Story) follows the travels of seven sisters as they are chased across the desert of Martu Country by an amorous old man named Yurla.
Yurla followed the sisters from Roebourne on the coast of Western Australia. At one point in the story, Yurla snatches one of the women, but her sisters trick him and manage to rescue her. Eventually they escape into the sky, taking the form of the seven stars comprising the Pleiades constellation.
67 x 133cm 12mm 100% silk satin with hand rolled edges.
All of our scarves are packaged in a beautiful gift box and include an Artist’s card, detailing the artist’s work and practice.
