Anangu love Christmas, so this year we have put together miniature punu sets perfect for your Christmas Tree.  Place this set of decorations on your Christmas tree this year to bring the Bush Christmas to you. Each set of Christmas Decorations comes in a classic Maruku Arts Gift Box. 

Carvings by Anangu (Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people) are known as punu, hand carved and decorated with walka, patterns burnt into the wood with wire heated on a wood fire. The animals all have their associations with the Tjukurpa, the stories of the Creation Ancestors and the activities which shaped the land, the people and their Law. Many of the details of Tjukurpa are restricted to senior custodians and it is not always possible to describe the stories involved.
