Lorrpu (Sulphur-crested Cockatoo) Frida Tote bag

About the design:

Lorrpu (Sulphur-crested Cockatoo) are a totemic species significant to the Gupapuyngu clan of the Yirritja moiety. They are represented through storylines and songlines during ceremonial practises. Lorrpu can be found in large flocks across the Arafura Swamp. Peter says “when you look at the Mayku tree from far away, you think you can see them but your eyes are playing tricks on you. As you get closer you can see them clearly – there they are, sitting in the Mayku tree”.

FABRIC ARTWORK

This product was screenprinted by Yolŋu art workers at Bula’Bula Arts. We print small batches of tea towels, tshirts and fabric lengths by hand because we love putting Yolŋu designs on everyday items – especially ones that balanda (non-Yolŋu) use! Due to the lovely handmade nature of this product, print quality may vary.

Manymak (very good)! Buying Bula’Bula Arts products helps us build a sustainable income source for our 150 artists and artworkers from Ramingining and surrounding outstations.
