Mindirr (conical basket) (#190-20)

Pandanus, kurrajong and bush dyes, 23 x 20 x 20 cm, 2020

Mindirr are common across Arnhem Land, however they are known by many different names depending on their specific origins and design. Some mindirr are made for ceremony and are adorned with clan designs, signifiers and totems. Other mindirr are designed to carry certain foods or to assist with food preparation. Contemporary artists such as Mandy Batjula use mindirr as a departure point to express their clan designs and explore the limitless potential of form and colour.
