Description - Larrakitj by Kerry Stokes Collection

In the proudly ancient Yolngu heartlands larrakitj were used to contain the bones of the deceased during mortuary ceremonies. Today, artists from Arnhem Land's Buku-Larrnggay Mulka arts centre produce modern larrakitj for the education of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

Collected for a decade, the larrakitj collection of 110 Yolngu memorial poles from north-east Arnhem form a special part of the Kerry Stokes collection. This beautifully illustrated book features photos of the artworks and the artists with comprehensive biographies and stunning images of Arnhem Land.

Buy Larrakitj by Kerry Stokes Collection from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
