This design depicts a tree branch used in the cooking process of kangaroo. Walye being the Arrente word for branch.

The design was created by Ewyenper Atwatye artists, Carol Young, Loretta Neil, Noeleen McMillan from (Hidden Valley Town Camp). Ewyenper Atwatye is the Central Arrernte place name for Hidden Valley, and the chosen name for the textile enterprise established by the community of Hidden Valley Town Camp in 2015. It is a satellite project of Tangentyere Artists. Each year, Tangentyere Artists run workshops in collaboration with the community, and out of these workshops new designs are released at Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair in August and Desert Mob in Alice Springs every September.

All Ewyenper Atwatye Artists’ products are ethically produced on high quality, natural fabrics. Sales directly support Ewyenper Atwatye, with the profit returning to artist fees and investment in future projects.
