Gong-Wapitja by Gillian Hutcherson
Book DescriptionContemporary women artists of the Yirrkala community in Northeast Arnhem Land create a wide variety of art and craft, from feathered string for ceremonies to large-scale murals for public buildings. Their works are represented in many public and private collections. The gon-wapitja or digging stick represents the role of women and their knowledge of and relationship to the land. It also stands for the sacred digging sticks carried by the Djan'kawu Sisters, the ancestral creators who used them to give life to all things in the world.
