An important study of the basketry and other non-loom fibre art of the Aboriginal Australian Yolngu people. This book retrieves recognition for the relatively unknown creative practice of the Gapuwiyak community. Celebrating both the women artists of this area and the bathi that are integral to all aspects of Yolngu life, 700 images illustrate the work of Gapuwiyak women past and present, highlighting their individual styles and demonstrating their cultural identity.
