This star mat by Connie Nayinggul has been opencoiled in the family tradition of the artist. It has a large centre of dyed and undyed pandanus. Openwork patterns are defined by the space between coils and are called baladjdji milengarrhngarr, they often form star or zig zag patterns.

Connie Nayinggul has previously worked as a cataloguer for Injalak and as a Park Ranger. When she is not raising her family she occasionally makes coiled baskets, sometimes in a fruit basket style.
