Containers of Power : Women With Clever Hands

$120.00

Containers of Power is the most comprehensive and consummate insight yet published into the Indigenous fibre art of northeast Arnhem Land. Based on Louise Hamby's long term engagement with the women of Gapuwiyak (Lake Evella) in Arnhem Land, this book retrieves recognition for the relatively unknown creative practice of this community. Over 700 images illustrate the work of the Gapuwiyak women past and present to highlight their individual styles and demonstrate the cultural identity.
