The Original Artwork: Punu

Punu is the Pitjantjatjara word for 'living wood'.

The wood itself is derived from slow-growing trees or plants found in the ancestral lands of the Anangu artists. The process of acquiring Punu involves careful selection, as it is believed that the wood possesses a spiritual essence and carries the energy of the land. The carver must seek out and respectfully collect the Punu, acknowledging its significance and the responsibility that comes with working with such sacred material.

Through the creation of intricate carvings and sculptures, Punu is used as a means to share stories, transmit cultural knowledge, and highlight the presence of the Pitjantjatjara, Ngaanyatjarra, and Yankunytjara peoples. The artistic works crafted from Punu serve as a form of cultural expression, providing a tangible representation of their traditions, beliefs, and ancestral connections.

It is important to recognize and respect the cultural significance and protocols associated with Punu and its artistic representation within the Aboriginal communities it originates from.

Meet the Artist: Billy and Lulu Cooley

Lulu Cooley is minyma ulkumunu, a senior Aboriginal woman. She is a consummate carver of many years experience, specialising in piti and wira, traditional bowls, as well as walka boards.

Billy Cooley was born on a cattle station and spent much of his life as a stockman.

Billy and Lulu have always worked closely together raising their six children and making spectacular carvings on their homeland near Amata. They have been long-term directors of Maruku, working closely with management for decades. In recent years the couple has participated in many exhibitions and carving demonstrations at Uluru as well as nationally and overseas. Billy and Lulu now take great pride in passing on their skills not only to their children but grandchildren as well.
