Magnet: Puntawarri, Yiwarra Kuju - The Canning Stock Route
Each magnet is 1.5mm thick, colour printed and laminated, with a superior strength magnet to attach card and heavier papers to your fridge or cabinet.
The image on this magnet is Puntawarri, Jilakurru and Kumpupirntily, 2008, painted by Dadda Samson and Judith Samson, Martumili Artists, in collaboration with the National Museum of Australia.
Jilakurru and Puntawarri are sites in Dadda's Country, which she has painted here with her granddaughter, Judith. While Puntawarri lies west of the Canning Stock Route, Jilakurru and Kumpupirntily fall within the stock route corridor. Jilakurru is a culturally significant site, host to a wealth of rock art and engravings, much of which is sacred to Martu people. The rich pastures of the adjacent gorge became a resting place for drovers and their herds.
