Story: Brush-Tail Possum
'Janganpa' (Brushtail Possum) are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees. They were once very common in the country surrounding Yuendumu. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the tracks of the 'Janganpa.' They are often represented in 'E' shaped figures and concentric circles are used to depict the trees in which they live.
One of my favourite things in my closet. The pattern is beautiful and I love using the scarf as a shawl, head scarf, top , etc. Very beautiful and multifunctional
I bought this for my mother, and we're both very happy with the quality of the fabric and the gorgeous design.
Absolutely love this scarf, so versatile and the colours are amazing! Definitely a favourite of mine
Lonely quality and vibrant colours. Even nicer than the photo shows. A lovely gift.
