This painting depicts a Syaw (Fish-net), traditionally woven with pinbin (bush vine) by the women and men of Peppimenarti to capture fish and cray-fish from fresh water creeks and rivers. The subject matter of Regina’s works is often based around the practice of weaving fibre art, and stems directly from her exceptional skills as a master weaver.
