Kunmadj (pandanus mat) and that ‘Sharp Tree’

‘I like lino, print my design and doing different way to print my lino, different colours and different way. I print lino Yawkyawk (spirit woman) and Andjolpo. This was an old lady and she create that language and the world before. I also print also Rolk (maggot), my mother design cause I’m the Djunkay (land manager) for her.’  Janet Marawarr 2020

This is a beautiful piece of cloth printed by hand in Maningrida.  Janet’s layout breaks away from a traditional block printed lino. Kunmadj (pandanus mat) dance loosely together in a harmonious repeat pattern.

Pink, white and yellow on a bright blue base.
