About the Artwork
The ancient Australian landscape with it’s eroded forms and organic shapes provides motivation for Keturah’s art. In this work Keturah depicts the natural rock formations (puli) found in and around Haasts Bluff.
How It's Made
Chainstitch is a traditional Kashmiri handicraft and important to the local economy. This work is produced in remote villages and provides important supplementary income between harvests and other rural work. The stitching is done by hand using an 'sari', a sharp hooked tool similar to a crochet hook.
