ABOUT THE ARTWORK: Djenj dja komrdawh, 2006 © Margot Gurawiliwili / Licensed by Copyright Agency These images are not to be reproduced without the approval of the licensor. “My country is called Mankorlod. It is near rock country. My dreaming is komrdawh (long neck turtle), the one I painted in my design. I like to eat komrdawh, it tastes really nice. We catch them in the dry and wet season near Mankorlod. This is my first ever design, and I only have one design. I painted it with a brush at Bábbarra Women’s Centre, and I feel proud when people print my design.” The vines depicted in this design grow naturally on the floodplains in Arnhem Land and are used by women to weave and create fibre sculpture. The long-necked turtle and freshwater fish depicted are popular bush foods.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: In addition to being a strong textile artist, Margot is also a talented weaver, skillfully weaving pandanus into colourful baskets and dillybags. She uses a number of weaving techniques, including coiling and twinning, and makes a range of functional and ceremonial objects, including baskets, dilly bags, string bags and mats. Margot is renowned for her bold designs, the consistency of her weave and her sophisticated sense of form. She is confident sourcing a diverse range of pigments from natural plant materials, such as leaves, roots and berries.
