Presented by BSG PROJECTS and Maningrida Arts and Culture, this exhibition showcases a collection of Burlupurr (the Burarra word for dilly bag) a large woven collecting basket of varying shapes, materials and sizes. These baskets are often made from the vine 'Malasia scandens', a strong pliable plant which grows along the floor and into the canopy of monsoon vine thickets.
The bags are used to collect any kind of large numbers of heavy foods such as fish caught in conical fish traps or large collections of yams. They can also be made from Pandanus spiralis, a plant which grows in many areas of Arnhem Land. These dilly bags are a tightly woven collecting basket, very finely made. These dilly bags are often used to collect sugarbag, the native honey.
