ABORIGINAL ART FACE MASK ELAINE LANE PAPULADKUTJA ARTISTS
The artwork on this mask is based on artwork by Elaine Lane from Papulankutja Artists located at Blackstone, Western Australia.
Papulankutja (Blackstone) is a remote Aboriginal Community, located at the foothills of the Blackstone Ranges in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, Western Australia.
Papulankutja Artists evolved out of the Women’s Centre where painting was encouraged as an activity since 2001. Once registered as an Aboriginal Corporation in 2004 the artists were now able to govern their art centre independently.
In 2009 Papulankutja Artists moved into a purpose built art centre with rooms for men and women to paint. As well as their paintings Papulankutja Artists are known for their innovative fibre work and carvings from local wood.
Using some pretty amazing fabrics, Alperstein Designs have made
up a range of Australian made 100% cotton face masks featuring beautiful Aboriginal Artwork by artists from across Australia including Warlukurlangu Artists, Munupi Arts and more.
There’s a filter pocket on the inside of the mask and using the
adjustable nose wire, you can adjust the mask for a close fit to
your face. Elastic loops fit around your ears to hold the mask in
place. One size fits most.
These masks do not claim to give you respiratory protection from viruses but may help prevent the spread of germs to others.
It is recommended to wash your mask between uses.
Royalties from this product directly benefit the artists and their community.
