Majardi is a belt or tassel made of spun hair or fur worn during traditional ceremonies. Human hair or sometimes the fur from wallabies and possums is taken is rolled on the thigh and then spun using a stick spindle. This string is then incorporated into a ‘majardi’ (skirts) or tassels to be worn by women or men during ceremonies. This painting connects with the ancestral women of Mina Mina. As they travelled over their country they wore ‘majardi’ performing dances and ceremonies.
Due to the delicate nature of these original paintings, each will be carefully packaged and shipped within 1 week.
