About the Moa Arts - Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts design: 
Ring Tide Weaving by Maria Ware.

“This artwork I have created is an interpretation of my ghost net weaving style. The significance of the colours, represent the reflection of the afternoon sun shining into the ring-tides around certain reefs.”

“I currently reside at St Paul’s village on Mua Island and am an artist with Moa Arts - Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts at Kubin Village. I have been making art since school and was taught weaving from my mum and aunties as well as other artwork. My focus is now on weaving and jewellery making. In 2011, I was commended for my ghost net basket at the Gab Titui Cultural Centre Indigenous Art Award. Since then more people are recognising my work which makes me proud. Since working with Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts I have learnt a lot of different styles and techniques including lino-cut prints and painting. I love making my art and it gives me the opportunity to do more and teach others.”

Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts (NLM) supports a strong tradition of artistic endeavor and cultural practices on Mua Island in the Torres Strait. The Torres Strait Islands is a group of at least 274 small islands located in an area lying between the tip of Cape York and New Guinea to the north. Artistic inspiration is drawn from ancestral stories, totemic representation and connections to sea, land, sky and family. Artists do not have to look far to be inspired. The island and its surrounding waters and reefs provide a highly diverse set of land and marine ecosystems with niches for many rare or unique species such as Dugong and Sea Turtles.
