Minnie Pwerle, one of Australia’s most important indigenous artists, was an Alyawarre woman born in the Utopia region in the early 1920s. Minnie was a custodian for her country and her stunning artwork pays homage to her Dreamings, country and ancestors.
She continued to paint remarkable artworks until her passing in 2006.
We are honoured to have had the opportunity to translate the work of Minnie Pwerle into a range of seven handmade rugs, and to give back to Minnie’s family and community through royalties to this day. The Atnwengerrp (Land of Dreamings) collection is a depiction of the patterns and designs painted on the top half of the women’s bodies during awelye, traditional women’s ceremonies. The collection showcases Minnie’s energetic brush strokes and bold use of colour.
