Here is the first look at our new 20th Anniversary Desert Mob folio box, containing prints from each of the 40 Desart-affiliated art centres in Central Australia, APY Lands, the Barkly, Kimberley, Western Desert and Northern goldfields of Western Australia.With a specially commissioned Tjanpi Weavers piece on each box, this is a collectors’ item. There are only ten of these beautiful solander boxes, made by Mario Zammit at Archival Products in Adelaide. The box photographed features a piece called “Parrot Men” by Judith Chambers. Inside you can see one of the prints: Carlene Thomson’s woodcut of birds (from Ernabella Arts).
