Antique white ink on Organic Bamboo T-shirt (Red)
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 is my country. I can’t remember how it all happened, because it happened before I was born. I have a scar on my back from it. My grandfather speared a wallaby at Kuruyultu. That night he ate that wallaby. At the same time my mother could feel me moving inside her. She was heavily pregnant with me. That next morning, after my grandfather had speared the wallaby, killed it and eaten it, I was born. I was born at Kuruyultu, near the rockhole there. I can’t remember my grandfather or my grandmother. I was still a little baby. We left that place, Kuruyultu. My father, my mother, my big sister and my father’s brother, we all left together and went to Haasts Bluff. I grew up in Haasts Bluff. I have been back to Kuruyultu for visits but I never lived there again in my country. I think about it every day. Only my father knows all the stories for that country and he painted them too… all the men’s stories. I know the story of the wallaby mother and daughter which left me with a birthmark. That’s what I paint: the wallaby mother and daughter.’
