This beautiful T-shirt has been screen printed by hand at Ikuntji Artists onto an organic t-shirt (ONNO Ethical t-shirts), and heat set for a lasting, ethical and sustainable piece of wearable art.
Because all of our shirts are printed on site, please allow for slight variation in prints and ink. T-shirt colours may also vary slightly due to the natural fibres and dyes used by ONNO in their production process.
This design shows the artist’s Tjukurrpa, the Tali Tali Dreaming. It refers to the vast and desolate sandhills of her country near Taalalpi, which is located beyond the Kintore/Kiwikurra road near the West Australian and Northern Territory border. This is the country where her father and mother used to travel by foot when she was a young girl. The place is still of great spiritual significance to Alice and her father’s family as it contains both, personal and tribal law to which Alice relates in her work. Water has collected in between the sandhills, providing sustenance for her porcupine. The tjikamamta (porcupine) is Alice’s own personal tjukurrpa (dreaming). She returned to her country for a visit in late 2005.
T-shirt care instructions:
We recommend that you wash your shirt inside out to avoid any damage to the print. ONNO t-shirts shrink when washed hot and dry hot, to preserve the fit of your shirt, please wash cool and line dry.
