Sacred Site by Janet Marawarr

Sacred Site

A one-off, three colour print on bush-green cotton overlaid with soft red, green, and white tones.

This is one of Janet’s early lino print designs.

The lino tile has been carved by the artist in Maningrida, and has been printed by hand using a variety of colours and layers. The linocut technique ensures each textile piece is a one-off, limited edition piece. Bábbarra Women’s Centre supports the economic independence of Indigenous women in the Arnhem Land community of Maningrida, Northern Territory, Australia. Designs created by the women at Bábbarra reflect strong cultural knowledge, which is passed down to younger generations through their textile design practice.
