Tjanpi Desert Weavers Sculptures



Expertly-crafted and great company, 3 lovely creatures from Tjanpi Desert Weavers

These exquisite hand-sculpted animals - mouse, bird and dog, are hand-woven from native grasses (minari, wangurnu and yirlintji) by women of the Tjanpi Desert Weavers Collective, a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council.

Tjanpi (meaning 'dry grass') supports aboriginal women living in remote Central and Western desert communities to create contemporary fibre art.

Grass is bound with wool, string and raffia, and combined with yirnirnti (red seeds of the bat-wing coral tree) and wipiya (emu feathers) 

Each expressive, colourful individual is uniquely hand made.


Mouse: 440 x 110mm

Dog: 430x185mm

Tjulpu (bird): 460x250mm
