Aboriginal Art

The book is a collaboration between five senior Yolngu women from north-east Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia and three academic women from Macquarie University and Newcastle University in New South Wales, Australia.  The book is written from a Yolngu perspective and shares the processes and methods of weaving and its preparation.  Importantly, its storytelling and images discuss the metaphoric and cultural significance of weaving for Yolngu women.
