Artist story:

Martha is a Yawuru-Karajarri woman based in Broome. Martha says of this design “Man-galagun (Crab Creek) is where our family used to take us when we were small. It is everyone’s favourite fishing spot. People gather there and catch up, yelling out ‘Aye, you get any fish? Did you catch langga (catfish), walgawalga (salmon) gungunbiny (grunter) or any wangaja (mud crab)?’
Then we all sit down around the fire and cook up our beautiful feed that we just caught and drink a smokey tea, sharing the catch with everyone. Country always gives us plenty of nagula mayi (seafood).”

This is a limited-edition piece of clothing. There are only 30 of these made across the 5 sizes.
