Maruku Arts

Lot 621, Maruku Precinct, Mutitjulu, NT, 0872

For 35 years Maruku has operated as a not-for-profit art and craft corporation across 22 communities in the NPY Lands, serving more than 500 artists. Maruku is owned and operated by Anangu, and is the only organisation concentrating on punu (wood carving) in the Central and Western Desert area. The Art Centre’s purpose is to keep culture strong and alive, for future generations and to make culture accessible in an authentic and enduring way. But Maruku is also an important source of income for artists living in remote communities. We don't receive any ongoing government funding and therefore rely fully on our art sales.

Prices include packaging and national postage.
