Karlamilyi River Headsox
This wonderful Headsox design is by Martumili artist Minyawe Miller. This vibrant reproduction depicts Karlamilyi River flowing past the sand hills and clay pans in the artist’s country. Minyawe grew up in the Punmu area with his sister and fellow artist Nancy Taylor, and many other family members.
As a young man, he walked long distances carrying only his tajitaji (smouldering stick) and his jurna (hunting stick). He ate womula (fruit) and all kinds of meat including emu giddi giddi (kangaroo), pussycat and dingo. Minyawe now lives in Punmu, with his wife, children and grandchildren, where he paints great stretches of country in a very distinctive, precise style.
We pay this artist a 10% royalty for all sales of this Headsox design.
