Created by First Nations artist Judith Anya Samson, a Putijarra woman.
"When I paint I think about my old people, my elders, and the stories they used to tell me- about walking around in Country. They used to ...walk around there, in our place. And now I'm painting it in my own style. In my own way, I tell these stories for the old people. The ones who have passed away. Remembering my old people makes me feel strong.
We drink water at Puntawarri. We clean and dig that waterhole. This Country is Puntawarri. My nanna, [decease Martumili artist Dadda Samson], taught me to paint this Country. Puntawarri is important because it is my pop’s, my nannas' husband’s, place. They camped there and went hunting for goanna or anything, kangaroo or turkey. At Puntawarri there are all the waterholes. Good hunting this Country. There is still some Rabbit Proof Fence there."

Great styles colours and quality
Nice bright colours. Love the shirt. Quick delivery.
This shirt has been my favourite for many years and finally it was rereleased and I bought another one ( Should have got two). This shirt has started more conversations than any of my 20 other indigenous themed shirts. Great product and equal quality in production. Reminds people that the indigenous First Nations peoples are the heart of this great nation and that they wear their heart on their sleeves and with hand on their heart they will continue to fight for it and embrace all the good that has come despite the sadness brutality and sorrows. A chest pocket would make it the “perfect” shirt and a pen slot on the sleeve shoulder as well please.
I've had so many compliments on my shirt! Now others at work have bought the same. Fits great! Quick turnaround too.
We were delighted with the quick turnaround of our order and the great follow up from Life Apparel Co regarding an additional (backorder) of our shirts. Our team can't wait to wear the great shirts as our sailing team shirt for the 2023/2024 sailing season. We love the product and quality of the shirts.
