Almost Gone!

One of Twelve Wakapulkatjara Tie by Molly Miller.

“When I was a little girl we walked everywhere, there were no motorcars then. Always walking, around and around, and around. This is a happy place for me. Looking after children, lots of rabbits, lots of maku (witchetty grub), lots of honey ants. We were really happy back then. This is a beautiful place.” – Molly Miller

In this painting, Miller depicts the rocky Country surrounding her birthplace, Wakapulkatjara, south east of Papulankutja (Blackstone) on the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Lands.

As she paints, Miller recalls her travels between Papulankutja and Mantumaru, traversing puli (rocky outcrops) and tali (sand hills) and stopping at rockholes related to her father’s Tjukurrpa (Dreaming).

The viewer becomes immersed in the painting’s gentle shifts in tone and form. There is no need to gain bearings. Through this work, Miller invites us to travel the contours of her Country beside her, appreciating the rhythmic nuances of her sprawling homelands.

100% silk satin with cotton padding and silk lining. All of our ties come in a beautiful giftbox and include an artist’s card, detailing the artist’s work and practice.

Perfect gift for travelers

This stunning silk tie has a subtle colour change that seems to shimmer. The artist story made it the perfect gift for my son-in-law setting off overseas for a few years to study.
