Containers of Power: Women with Clever Hands
Richmond, VIC: Utber and Patullo. New; 9.25 x 12.25 Hardback in New condition. 2010. Hardcover. Illustrated by 700 illustrations, most in color.; An important study of the basketry and other non-loom fiber art of the Aboriginal Australian Yolngu people. "The most comprehensive and consummate insight yet published into the Indigenous fibre art of northeast Arnhem Land, Containers of Power investigates the complex set of relationships between fibre works and their makers. Based on the long term engagement of anthropologist Louise Hamby with the women of Gapuwiyak (Lake Evella) in Arnhem Land, this book retrieves recognition for the relatively unknown creative practice of the Gapuwiyak community. Celebrating both the women artists of this area and the bathi that are integral to all aspects of Yolngu life, 700 images illustrate the work of Gapuwiyak women past and present, highlighting their individual styles and demonstrating their cultural identity." -Publisher; 10; 336 pp. .
