Headsox - "Mikantji - Water Dreaming' by Annette Williams by Tilau Nangala

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 Papunya Tjupi Arts artist Tilau Nangala. The design relates to a place called Mikantji, an important Water Dreaming site, west of Yuendumu (Northern Territory) whose custodians are the Nangala and Nampitjimpa women and their brothers the Tjangala and Tjimpitjimpa men. The painting tells how the women perform ceremonies or inna celebrating the creation of the Mikantji site by the storm ancestors. The U shapes are women, cycles are waterholes, long sinuous lines are creeks and short curved lines are puuli or hills
