Karlamilyi River by Minyawe Miller Headsox

Headsox are a multifunctional, seamless head and neckwear accessory made from stretchy micro fibre. They're light and flexible and provide the ideal defence from the elements helping to keep you cool when the going gets hot in summer, and protecting your head, ears and neck when the chill starts to kick in.

This wonderful Headsox design is by Martumili artist Minyawe Miller. This vibrant reproduction depicts Karlamilyi River flowing past the sand hills and clay pans in the artist's country. Minyawe grew up in the Punmu area with his sister and fellow artist Nancy Taylor, and many other family members. As a young man, he walked long distances carrying only his tajitaji (smouldering stick) and his jurna (hunting stick). He ate womula (fruit) and all kinds of meat including emu giddi giddi (kangaroo), pussycat and dingo. Minyawe now lives in Punmu, with his wife, children and grandchildren, where he paints great stretches of country in a very distinctive, precise style.

Royalties from this product directly benefit the artist and their community. We reckon that's pretty cool!
