Product Description

Tibetan hand-Knotted Rug 1.5 x 2.33m-RSA926

These beautiful, unique rugs are a cross-cultural collaboration combining Aboriginal designs and traditional Tibetan rug-making techniques. Handknotted, using hand dyed wool, each is a made in a community in Kathmandu auspiced by the Dalai Llama’s Government in exile.

These rugs were ordered one week before the 2015 earthquake in Nepal (also known as the Gorkha earthquake).  This devastating earthquake stopped work on our order for over 12 months. The earthquake  displaced the artisans and many people lived outdoors form months following the tragedy. Production of the rugs was held up for over 12 months as working was extremely difficult. The order and production of these rugs helped keep our suppliers in business over a difficult time.

This project brings many direct benefits to the artists’ and their community. Control and ownership of intellectual property are also maintained.  Purchase of these rugs guarantees a direct return to the Aboriginal artist and their community.

Rama’s painting illustrates people sitting at an inma (ceremony) out Pipalyatjara way. There are wati tjuta, munu minma, munu tjiti tjuta, walytja tjuta (many men, women, children and families) sitting, singing and talking – each circle represents a person. This is taking place in Rama’s country, Kuntjanu, and all the people are looking to see what is going to take place.Rama has a deep understanding of important traditional Kuntjanu tjukurrpa stories, his homeland. His paintings illustrate the many aspects of the Wanampi Tjukurpa – Rainbow Serpent Dreaming.
