Karen describes her original painting from which this design is drawn, as Walka. Walka is any meaningful mark or pattern and may be an image on a cave wall, on rock or on sand and has cultural and ritual significance. It is used on the body during inma or ceremony. The imagery includes plants and flowers, and is based on the Indonesian batik-style of painting, which many artists learned in Ernabella (Pukatja). This recent series of works produced with a sand adding texture to the work is a tribute to Karen’s natural artistic style and her familiarity with the earthy medium.

Hand dyed, chain stitched wool finished with a heavy cotton backing. This cushion cover is born of a cross cultural collaboration between Aboriginal artists and traditional Kashmiri weavers through Better World Arts, certified 'Fair Traders of Australia'.

Purchase of this cushion cover directly benefits the artists and and their communities, control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained.
