Anangu only work on traditional carvings (punu) if they can envision the final piece present in the raw materials they see on country; the land seemingly presents the artist with the piece.
Maruku ensures artist time and expenses are remunerated fairly, however the punu (the wood itself) is the purest form of a gift from the carver to the receiver. Punu is a slow growing piece of an Anangu artist’s ancestral lands. Punu is painstakingly sought and willingly given, to enlighten the world to the presence of the Pitjantjatjara, Ngaanyatjarra and Yankunytjara peoples of the central and western deserts.
