Mary Napangardi Butcher’s artwork Pikilyi Jukurrpa depicts the Dreamtime Story of two rainbow serpents who were the custodians of Pikilyi, a natural water spring on Warlpiri country. The serpents lived together as man and wife but were from different clans. This was a marriage forbidden by Warlpiri law.

Extra generous size of 110x220cm, for use as a scarf, wrap or sarong. 100% sheer silk chiffon, with hand-rolled hems.

Free global gift-boxed shipping.

Mainie embraces Fair Trade principles and is strongly committed to supporting Aboriginal artists to preserve their traditional cultural heritage.

All the artwork featured on Mainie products is ethically acquired through Aboriginal owned and controlled arts centres, most of which are located on the ancestral homelands of the artists. This ensures the authenticity of each artwork as a genuine depiction of a traditional Dreamtime story, which has been handed down intact to the Aboriginal artist through many generations of his or her ancestors over thousands of years.

Mainie’s commercial arrangements with the Aboriginal artists are governed by formal agreements in accordance with the Indigenous Art Code.
