Jiidid (whirlpool) earrings


SKU: N/A Category:


Jiidid (whirlpool) design by Mayala artist Cecilia Tigan.
Cecilia comes from Djarindjin up on the Dampier Peninsula 160kms north of Broome.
It is country surrounded by sea and this design tells the story of the ‘jiidid’ and the power and strength of the ocean on her country. The importance of carefully reading the massive tides that rip through and knowing when it is safe to go into the deep ocean or you get caught in a ‘jiidid’ and get spun from one to the next.
