Carolyn Kenta – Echidna & Donkey


Out of stock

Fibre Art Sculptures, Echidna and Donkey set by Carolyn Kenta. Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a dynamic social enterprise of NPY Women’s Council. Tjanpi (meaning ‘dry grass’) supports Aboriginal women living in remote Central and Western desert communities to create contemporary fibre art.

When collecting desert grasses (minarri, wangurnu and yirlintji), women visit sacred sites and traditional homelands, hunt and gather food for their families, and teach children about country. Grass is bound with wool, string or raffia and combined with yirnirnti (red seeds of the bat-wing coral tree and wipiya (emu feathers).

Dry Grass bound with wool and raffia.
