'World Peace, Tiwi Treaty' 2018-07-09
This screen print features a poem by Jon Jon,
“Today is the day, today is our brand new day. Get up and stand for treaty now. I am the world peace.
I fight for treaty for all of us. Treaty for you, treaty for me, treaty for everyone in this world. Yes, this one world.”
Our Jilamara textiles are hand screen printed by a team of 4 printers, in the Nancy Henry Ripijingimpi screenprinting studio at Jilamara. Each meterage is unique and will most likely have one or two bush touches (a little Milikapiti earth, a smudge of ochre etc). We hope these imperfections remind you of where these textiles were made. We use hanky linen, 100% cotton and a cotton polyester blend. Fabric is sold in 2-metre lengths. Please enquire about colourways or if you have something else in mind.
