Marebu (woven mats) were traditionally valuable items made by women. They were made in a variety of shapes and had many uses including: being worn, used as surfaces for food preparation and used during ceremonies. Children could sleep on them or be rolled up in them and carried, especially during yekke (the cold season in June/July). Gwenyth Mangiru explains that people were originally inspired to make round mats by the shape of the moon.This lithograph was based on real examples of woven Pandanus spiralus Marebu at Injalak Arts with all their variety of pattern and weaving techniques. 

Created at the Australian Print Workshop in Melbourne, this lithograph showcases the integration of modern technologies with traditional art practices.
